The incident began after a group of people beat up a 37-year-old man who later turned into a suspect, and who took the gun from the woman who started off the retaliatory gunfire: a 74-year-old woman known in Trenton as “Mama Dean."

The complaint was made to the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. According to the filed document, the firm is claiming the film “defames and portrays the Plaintiffs as ruthless uncaring lawyers who are involved in money laundering, tax evasion, bribery and/or other criminal conduct”.

“The implications and innuendo converge to cast Plaintiffs in the light of mastermind criminals whose crimes include, but are not limited to, murder, bribery, money laundering and/or corruption. Defendant’s trailer and movie have clearly defamed the Plaintiffs and cast them in the false light of criminality,” the suit reads.
