Hudgens Settles Lawyer Lawsuit


Actress VANESSA HUDGENS has settled a breach-of-contract lawsuit filed against
her by her former lawyer.

The High School Musical star, 18, was sued last month (Dec07) by ex-attorney
Brian Schall, who claimed Hudgens owed him over $150,000 (#75,000) in back
commissions after he helped her become a star and make over $5 million (#2.5
million) from her songwriting and recording career.

But Hudgens countered that Schall’s work was “below professional standard”,
and claimed that, as she only 16 at the time of signing the contract with him,
she was too young for it to hold legal weight. She alleged the deal broke
California’s Family Code law because she was under 18 when she signed it – a
claim Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Tricia Ann Bigelow threw out in early
December (07).

However, following a court hearing on Tuesday (15Jan08), the two parties have
come to an agreement over the issue, although the details of which have yet to
be disclosed, according to E! News
