Schumacher Wins Legal Row in Germany

Saturday March 31st, 2001

On the eve of the Brazilian Grand Prix, World Champion Michael Schumacher has received good news from Germany, after a court ruled in his favour in a case against his impersonator's talent agency.

Schumacher had sued Dutchman Frank Saasen after the controversial impersonator used his likeness to the German driver as a means to make a living.

Now, a court at the city of Muelheim has ruled against the talent agency and Saasen, and they will be forced to pay the triple world champion almost one million dollars in compensation.

Earlier this year, Schumacher's lawyers were suspected of having been allegedly involved with a break-in to the talent agency's offices.
