The synopsis reads: “When her idyllic vacation takes an unthinkable turn, Ellen Martin begins investigating a fake insurance policy.”
Netflix’s movie The Laundromat is based on the book: “Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers Investigation of Illicit Money Networks and the Global Elite.” However, Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca are suing Netflix for defamation based on how they are portrayed in the movie. They say Netflix portrays them as “ruthless uncaring lawyers who are involved in money laundering, tax evasion, bribery and/or other criminal conduct.”
Netflix wrote in response to the suit: “Plaintiffs’ Motion should be denied for a host of reasons. First, Plaintiffs are seeking an eleventh hour gag order against constitutionally protected speech, mere days before the motion picture at issue herein is to be released on Netflix. As the U.S. Supreme Court long ago recognized: “The importance of motion pictures as an organ of public opinion is not lessened by the fact that they are designed to entertain as well as to inform.”
