When Anna met Arnie: Why a British TV presenter is suing the Governor of California
Mr Schwarzenegger, 57, will be forced to defend allegations that he made unwelcome advances towards several women including the British television presenter Anna Richardson. She is expected to file a £100,000 libel suit next week.
Ms Richardson alleges that during a pre-recorded television interview with the actor he pulled her on to his knee and squeezed her nipple.
When Mr Schwarzenegger, who starred in three Terminator films, was first confronted with the allegation he is said to have claimed that Ms Richardson had encouraged this behaviour.
The legal action will centre on whether Mr Schwarzenegger or his team have damaged Ms Richardson's reputation as a professional interviewer by presenting her as someone who uses sex as part of her interview technique. Negotiations between the two sides have broken down and the case is expected to be set for trial later this year...
Other women allegedly groped by Mr Schwarzenegger are also expected to give evidence in court.
Six women who have met Mr Schwarzenegger since the 1970s have made similar allegations that were reported by the Los Angeles Times in the run-up to the gubernatorial election in California. A further 10 are being investigated. Ms Richardson's claim is thought to be the most recent and stems from an interview with the actor for an LWT film show, The Big Screen, in London in December 2000.
