Bit-part actress slings sueball at IMDb over age gripe

Work dried up, 40-year-old Junie Hoang claims

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

An actress who claims work dried up after her age was revealed on movie compendium website IMDb is suing the Amazon-owned company.

The identity of the minor TV star had remained anonymous until a lawsuit was filed last Friday revealing Huong Hoang from Texas was slinging a sueball at the site.

The actress, whose stage name is Junie Hoang, has appeared in 90 different productions - mainly for the small screen. Her credits include roles in unforgettable blockbusters Ungirlfriendable, Discretion and The Communicator.

According to the Associated Press, Vietnam-born Hoang, 40, filed a million-dollar claim against Amazon last autumn. In that complaint, she alleged that Amazon had probed her IMDb account to discover her age, which was consequently posted on the site.

The lawsuit was dismissed by a federal judge in Seattle, who said that such a complaint could not be filed anonymously. She had previously attempted to sue Amazon using the name 'Jane Doe', which the company rejected as being a "bogus" claim. ®
