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.

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.
