In a Los Angeles court case, former porn star Traci Lords has won a nearly $130,000 judgment against a distributor of adult videos who sold her only legal pornographic movie without permission. Lords, who made dozens of X-rated movies as a teenager between the ages 14 and 17, said Monday that she was relieved when she heard of the judgment. The movie in question, “Traci, I Love You,” was her only legal film, made in Cannes, France, days after she turned 18. (Her other films are illegal in the U.S. due to her age.) Of her past, “I made a mistake,” said the actress, who has since starred in mainstream movies and on TV’s “Melrose Place.” “I’m now 31 years old. That’s a long time ago. I’ve been waiting for my debt to be paid, and now it has.”
