Borat lawsuit / Boratklage(n)

The Romanian village of Glod (pictures here) is suing in New York, Florida and Germany, according to Salon last week.

Lawyers representing the villagers of Glod, Romania, say they’ll be filing three lawsuits against the makers of “Borat” in New York, Florida and Germany, asking not just for damages — they’re seeking over $30 million for the way they were portrayed in the film — but also that the film be edited to cast them in a better light.

One of the lawyers is Ed Fagan.

Where is Glod? Some Google Earth Community links suggest it is not far from Braşov / Kronstadt. I wonder if it’s a Transylvanian village now largely inhabited by Roma?
