Designer turned director Tom Ford just can’t let go


THE SCREENING ROOM TOM FORD has sent his second SOS from within the citadel of fashion. From whom or what does he need rescuing?

In each instance, Trump and entities he controlled also erected numerous hurdles that made lawsuits drag on for years, forcing courtroom opponents to spend huge sums of money in legal fees as they struggled sometimes in vain to obtain records.
