The Chicago Tribune reports that Angelina Jolie is asking a judge in Chicago to throw out a lawsuit against her or transfer it to California where she lives.

The lawsuit was filed in Chicago. It claims her film "In the Land of Blood and Honey" steals the work of Croatian journalist James Braddock.

Jolie directed the movie and says she never saw his book about the Balkan war. He says he met with one of the film's producer three times.
