Ex-Nun Sues Over “Sister Act”

Nuns take vows of poverty, but I guess the vows vanish when nuns leave the convent. Case in point: Nearly 20 years after the Whoopi Goldberg comedy Sister Act hit theaters, Walt Disney Co. and Sony Pictures are being sued by a woman who claims her autobiography was the inspiration for the film and the subsequent stage musical. The plaintiff is ex-nun Delois Blakely, representing herself with allegations of breach of contract, misappropriation of likeness, unjust enrichment and other claims.
