Honey lawsuit dismissed

A lawsuit filed by a dancer against producers behind Jessica Alba's 2003 movie Honey has been dismissed.

Honey Rockwell sought damages and a share of box office revenue from producers of the dance movie in the lawsuit, which she filed claiming her story was used as inspiration for the plot.


Rockwell accused the producers of using details about her life without permission for their movie about a hip-hop dancer from New York, played by Alba.


According to TMZ.com, a judge has now dismissed the lawsuit, ruling that Rockwell took too long to take legal action and she does not own any rights to her Honey stage name.
