Ex-orang trainer Berosini loses again

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, April 2007:
SAN FRANCISCO–The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on
February 6, 2007 upheld a lower court order that former Las Vegas
orangutan trainer Bobby Berosini owed $340,230 in legal fees and
interest to law firms representing former PETA executive director
Jeanne Roush.
The money was paid in May 2000, but Berosini appealed. The
appellate verdict appeared to end 17 years of litigation originating
in 1988, when PETA distributed a video clandestinely made by one of
Berosini’s employees, which showed Berosini striking an orangutan
backstage. Berosini won a $3.1 million defamation verdict against
PETA in 1990, but lost on appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court.
