Willis, Moore Win Round in Court

April 14, 1998

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Bruce Willis and Demi Moore won a round in court in the ongoing battle with their former nanny.

A federal judge on Monday threw out a lawsuit filed by Kim Tannahill, who claimed the stars owed her overtime pay for dragging her on trips around the world. The judge said the lawsuit doesn’t belong in federal court.

Tannahill cared for the actors’ three daughters for more than three years. She accused the couple of labor violations, claiming that she was required to go on long trips without receiving additional pay.

She also has a case pending against Willis and Moore in Los Angeles County Superior Court. In that lawsuit she alleges the couple verbally and physically abused her. She said Moore once locked her in a room for more than an hour.

The actors’ attorneys contend the claims are false, describing them as an extortion attempt. Willis and Moore are suing Tannahill for more than $300,000 in damages for slander, breach of confidentiality and allegedly charging personal expenses to the couple’s credit cards and accounts.
