More Celebrity Punitive Damages News

After a dearth of celebrity-related punitive damages news, we have two stories today:

Bruce Willis is suing two producers at Foresight Unlimited, claiming they lied to him about the financing they had obtained for Three Stories About Joan, a film Willis was supposed to direct. He wants punitive damages for fraud.

"Joe the Plumber" (is he still a celebrity?) is seeking punitive damages from three former Ohio officials for allegedly violating his privacy when they gathered his personal information in a records search.
