Allman now co-defendant with film company he's suing

There's a new, grim twist to the ill-fated Greg Allman movie. You'll recall that cameraperson Sarah Jones was killed in an accident during filming by a railway line, leading Allman to launch a lawsuit to take back the rights to his life story.

Now, Sarah Jones' parents are launching a scattergun lawsuit which includes Allman amongst those being sued. (Somewhat oddly, they're also suing the railroad, while admitting that the railroad never gave permission for any filming to take place. The descendants of Robert Louis Stevenson should expect a writ soon, on that basis.)
