Paris turns up for trial over film contract dispute

MIAMI: Paris Hilton has arrived for the Miami trial of a federal lawsuit accusing her of failing to adequately promote her 2006 movie "Pledge This!" Hilton entered the courthouse Thursday afternoon wearing a black and white dress.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of some film investors claims the 28-year-old didn't honour her contract to promote the DVD release.

The lawsuit seeks more than $8 million from Hilton and her entertainment firm.

Hilton contends she plugged the movie numerous times and did everything the contract required.

Hilton is expected to testify Friday. She's been in Dubai filming her "My New BFF" reality show.

The lawsuit was filed by a court-appointed receiver for a defunct Miami entertainment company that invested in the movie.
