Duchovny Loses Suit

David Duchovny has lost his battle over what he believes is a real-life conspiracy to sell his forged signature. The “X-Files” star, as well as Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”), filed separate lawsuits earlier this year against the New York-based Truly Unique Collectibles, an Internet firm that sells signed celebrity photographs. The suits claimed the company was selling phony signatures of the actors and was “stealing fame” by using unauthorized photographs of them to promote its products in ads. (Duchovny’s picture and signature went for $50.) The company denied the charges, and U.S. District Judge Robert J. Kelleher agreed, ruling that the allegations were groundless.

  • “We’ve always sold a legitimate product, so naturally, I feel exonerated,” Truly Collectibles president James Ferrazzano told the Associated Press. “We took on Superman and won.”
