German license trader Advanced Medien's troubles seem to have no end with the news that US-based Comerica Bank has filed a lawsuit against subsidiary Advanced Licencing.

The lawsuit is over payment of over $2m in loans granted by the bank to Unified Film Organization (UFO), a 51% subsidiary of Advanced Medien, to finance its feature film production.

In an official statement, Advanced Medien's management board said that 'four of the six film productions in question, which account for $ 1.7 m of the lawsuit, were cancelled by Advanced Licencing in October 2002 because UFO had been unable to deliver them on time..'
