NEW YORK (AP) -- Woody Allen has been awarded $95,000 in legal fees in a dispute with his former producer.
State Supreme Court Justice Bernard Fried on Thursday ordered Jean Doumanian, Allen's former producer and friend of 30 years, to pay the sum to Allen's Moses Productions.
The two clashed earlier this year over how to edit Allen's films to meet television standards.
The judge ordered the producer to pay Allen $48,000 in legal fees, and held Doumanian's production company, Sweetland Films, in contempt for failing to put money in escrow. Fried ordered Sweetland to pay Allen another $47,000 in fees.
In May 2001, Allen had filed a lawsuit charging that Doumanian and Jacqui Safra, her personal and professional partner, had cheated him out of $12 million from six movies. The parties settled the dispute in 2002 for an undisclosed sum.
Allen, 70, won a best director Oscar for "Annie Hall" and a screenwriting Oscar for "Hannah and Her Sisters." He has also directed "Bullets Over Broadway," "Crimes and Misdemeanors," "Interiors" and "Mighty Aphrodite."
