Lawsuit filed by anti-Obama filmmakers

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- The three executive producers of an anti-Obama movie are in a California court arguing over who gets the money it made.

Dinesh D'Souza, one of three executive producers of "2016: Obama's America," which has racked up millions in box office receipts and DVD sales, wrote a book heavily drawing from the film and has not shared any of the profits with the film's two other creators, a lawsuit filed in San Diego Superior Court alleges. A separate suit alleges D'Souza tried to wrest control of the production company responsible for the film away from his two collaborators, in violation of an agreement the trio had forged, U-T San Diego reported Tuesday.

D'Souza, also the film's director, is being sued by his two partners Douglas Sain and Christopher Williams. The trio formed Obama's America Foundation, a film production company, half of which is owned by D'Souza and the other half split between Sain and Williams, Sain's lawyer said.

Sain charged D'Souza diverted money from OAF to fund his personal ventures and help pay for an affair he was having with a woman. D'Souza denied the affair but resigned from his position on the board of an evangelical college and filed for divorce from his wife of 20 years Oct. 4, U-T San Diego reported.
