I have heard and seen some really strange causes of action in my time, but I think Annie Bierman is really going out on a limb. She is suing the producers of David Carradine's last film for neglect because they didn't watch over him 24 hours a day. In papers obtained by TMZ, Annie states that an assistant hired to watch over David decided to go to dinner without the actor when the assistant couldn't reach Carradine.
For that she is suing? Seriously? Was the assistant supposed to be with him and watch while he tied himself and played his sex game? Was that in the job description? Was the assistant supposed to watch Carradine sleep and make sure the covers didn't slip off him? The guy was 72 years old and in good shape. Why on earth would someone have to stay with him 24 hours a day?
It isn't like David was dying in the hotel room when the assistant went to dinner. Her papers say that Carradine called the assistant back but they were already on the other side of town and couldn't come back to get him. Presumably the assistant invited David to join them, but even if they didn't it shouldn't matter.
I just think this is ridiculous.
