Lisa Kudrow

'Friends' Star Must Pay $1.6 Mil For Screwing Ex-Manager

Lisa Kudrow screwed her ex-manager out of a small fortune in commissions ... so says an L.A. jury ... and now she owes him $1.6 million.

Manager Scott Howard sued back in 2008 -- a year after he and Kudrow parted ways -- claiming the actress still owed him a ton of money from her days on "Friends." 

Howard claimed he and Kudrow had an oral agreement ... that would give him a cut of her income ... but Kudrow disputed they had such an agreement.

Jurors sided with Howard ... because it hasn't been Lisa's day, her week, her month, or even her year.

Lisa's lawyer says the actress plans to appeal the verdict.

She morphed into Kathy Lee Gifford. She'll get a good job playing a granny to pay for the judgement.

Nice to see the justice system makes entitled Hollywood players pay their debts. First that deadbeat whack job Mary Murphy lost a lawsuit to her manager. Now this.

An oral agreement/contract is valid in court?

Now that I think of it, I had an oral agreement with her too. I will settle out of court for 500K

I do not think it helped Lisa to go on the Witness Stand and answer Questions as Phoebe instead of herself.

What a dumb jury. They have no idea what they're doing. An oral agreement? Good grief. You can't prove that. Everyone knows you have to have a signed do***ent to prove your case like that. Judge Judy would have thrown him out. This is why our jury system is a joke. Too many dumb people end up on juries.

Whatever    

Another example of idiots serving on a jury. When I go to jury duty and look around at the mouth breathers in the pool, I am reminded to never do anything wrong since these are the decision-makers in our justice system. A business employment contract that is not in writing is not enforceable. It's not void to be an oral contract but also not enforceable.

Side note: I recently served on a federal jury dealing with a major international crime. Lots of trafficking of all types of people and things. Our foreman walks into the jury room, minute one of deliberation, and says, "Guilty, now where are the donuts?"

Jurors are a crap shoot.
