Chris Rock's Good Hair Documentary Wins Legal Battle

Chris Rock was recently at the center of a legal dispute, but not necessarily for the reason you might expect. The comedian is the producer of the new documentary Good Hair, which was accused by documentary filmmaker Regina Kimbell of having too many similarities to her film My Nappy Roots.

But turns out, her claims are bogus-- or at least a judge thinks so. THR reports that federal judge Dale S. Fischer watched both films and didn't find enough similarities to fulfill Kimbell's request to block the film's release. So Good Hair will hit theaters nationwide on October 23, just in time to capitalized on its recent Gotham Independent Film Award nomination for Best Documentary. Chris Rock wins again!
