According to WorstPreviews, the woman, who is of Asian descent, filed the suit in Seattle, and claims that IMDB and Amazon got her age after she signed up for IMDB Pro, using her credit card to get her personal information.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The complaint states:
“If one is perceived to be ‘over-the-hill,’ i.e. approaching 40, it is nearly impossible for an up-and-coming actress, such as the Plaintiff, to get work as she is thought to have less of an ‘upside’ therefore casting directors, producers, directors, agents/managers, etc. do not give her the same opportunities, regardless of her appearance and talent.”
The woman goes on to note that she is too old to be cast for young jobs, and too young to be cast for older jobs, and when she contacted IMDB to remove her age, the site refused.
She is demanding punitive damages of at least $1 million, plus a restraining order against IMDb.
