On Wednesday, Sheila posted that Nicholas Cage was suing Kathleen Turner for defamation in London's High Court based on a few sentences Turner wrote in her autobiography. Sheila also reported that, according to the New York Daily News, "If [Cage] doesn't get an apology and a retraction, he intends to go full speed ahead with litigation in the U.S." Apparently Turner has apologized for "causing distress." However, it appears she did not retract her statements. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Turner said, "This is what I remember, these are my thoughts and (they were) certainly not intended to damage anyone else." It almost sounds like that's an attempt to place her statements in the "opinion" category. However, her statements about Cage--he was allegedly arrested twice for DUI and, possibly, once for stealing a dog-- are factual.
