Sobol v. Canavan et al. (17-cv-12275).

Photographer Richard Sobol sued filmmakers Sheila Canavan and Michael Chandler for copyright infringement. Sobol alleges that the defendants, operating as Pack Creek Productions, used a number of Sobol’s photographs of ex-Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank in their 2015 documentary film Compared to What? The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank.  Sobol seeks destruction of all copies of the film and actual and/or statutory damages.  Judge Stearns was assigned to the case.
