A lawsuit over tabloid headlines is now attracting tabloid attention.
Tom Cruise's $50 million lawsuit against Bauer Publishing over Life & Style magazine's story that he had "abandoned" his 6-year-old daughter, Suri, has been in the headlines of late -- prompted by disclosures of the actor's deposition.

Of late, there's been plenty of stories -- and confusion -- about what Cruise said in the course of being interviewed by Bauer's attorneys.
One thing absent from most of the recent news coverage is any explanation of how this all fits into the $50 million lawsuit itself. What's the relevancy of whether or not Tom Cruise thinks acting is like fighting overseas to his legal claims that his reputation has been damaged? »
