Texas Actress Sues Amazon for Revealing Birthday

An actress is suing Amazon.com in Seattle for more than $1 million for revealing her age on its Internet Movie Database website and refusing to remove the reference when asked.

KIRO-FM reports the actress said Amazon's conduct amounts to fraud and breach of contract. She used Jane Doe in court documents filed last week and believes her personal information was taken after she used her credit card to purchase a professional subscription to IMDb.

The actress is from Texas but her hometown was not included in court documents.

The woman believes she has lost income because the information was posted. Her attorney said 40-year-old actresses are not in demand in the movie business.

Neither Seattle-based Amazon nor IMDb have commented on the claim.
