Vanessa Hudgens

Stars in High School Lawsuit-ical

9/18/2007 7:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"High School Musical" star Vanessa Hudgens is being sued by her attorney for unpaid fees -- totaling $150,000 -- and says he helped her earn more than $5 million clams! That's a lot of scratch for an 18-year-old!

Vanessa Hudgens
Brian L. Schall's suit alleges that Miss Hudgens (who recently became known worldwide via her nudie pix) owes for legal services based on contracts she signed with Schall dating to October, 2005, and he wants his 5% of her earnings.

The suit says that Vanessa "has paid some, but not all, of the money owed ..." Too bad he didn't have a piece of those infamous pix.

Calls to Vanessa's reps were not immediately returned.

She ws under 18 when all this stuff happened i bet someoe else is in charge of all the legal money stuff. He should let the people who manage her know instead of this. He is just trying to cause more drama that she does not need this right now.

she can afford to pay. she made over $2 million from hsm alone so if anything, this was either her parents or accountant's fault. it's funny how 'this lawyer' is trying to cash in on the vanessa media. if her contract was from 2005, then she would've been only 16..making her a minor and she can't sign a contract without a legal guardian so there you have it. give the girl a break.
oh ya..

If Hudgens was under 18 in 2005, it's possible that she had no legal obligation to fulfill any contract she signed as a minor, unless it was co-signed by a legal guardian, at which point the legal guardian is obligated.

Be careful when you sign contracts with lawyers. They win. You lose.

She is just now 18. In 2005, she could not enter into a legal contract. YOU ARE NOT TELLING THE FULL STORY, TMZ! Maybe this "lawyer" is just trying to get his name out there now that she is well known!

TMZ, you need to not only get all the facts straight but to get all the facts!!!

Her lawyer will be crucified in court. He voluntarily added the ad-hominem : "“Perhaps Vanessa Hudgens… needs to go back to school to learn a very basic lesson in contractual obligations,” which opens the door to his clients' contractual and legal competence.

Since the contract was signed in 2005, and since his client was born in December of 1988 (basically 1989) she was barely 16. With parental consent, she would be able to enter into SOME contracts, but since her laywer raised the competence issue, then he's basically given implicit consent to balance the entire case on the issue of his clients' standing, and not being of the age of majority, when "knowledge of contractual obligations" are expected, then he's rather personally sunk his own case.

What kind of idiot laywer puts ad-hominems in the lawsuit?!

She's a cheap ho. Disney should can her ass. Decent women do not pose for nude pics, even for boyfriends, specially for boyfriends when you are 18. It denotes lack of moral character. Moral character is not learned in school, it comes with home upbringing. Which means she's a cheap ho. PAY THE LAWYER, cheap lowlife.

She's a skank -- the ho apparently is savvy enough to take nude, underage pictures of herself and mail them off to try and further her 'career,' IMO.

I hate snobs!    

Just another snot-nosed immature teenybopper who thinks she can do what she wants and nothing will come back to her. Teenagers live for the moment and wow are they suffering regrets nowadays. Her nasty pics are now so deep on the internet that they'll forever be around. Way to go Vanessa...acting like just another cheap wh*re. LEARN FROM THAT and stop making trashy mistakes or you'll never be anything more than another Britney Spears.
