The producers of Crash have filed suit against Bob Yari, the movies finance source, claiming that he has cheated them of many a million and had additionally used the movie to further his own business intrests. This adds to the "land" lord's suit against the PGA and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in which he alleges that his name was removed unrightfully off the eligible-to-win producers list for the upcoming Oscars. The law suit that Cathy Schulman and Tom Nunan have against the real estate mogul seeks damages to the tune of a couple of million dollars.
The lawsuit that Yari has against the PGA and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences states that Yari was indeed a hand in the production of the film. It made clear indications of his efforts in that direction. His suit also claimed that he was not given a fair and right chance to appeal against his name being taken off the producer's list of Crash.
Yari and the producing pair had team up for three-year deal under which the pair were to undertake and produce projects. These projects too, the lawsuit claims, were discredited from them both in the credits and financially by not allowing them their share of the profit generated by them. Projects that they handled under the deal were Thumbsucker, Employee of the Mont, and The Illusionist among others.
