Trivia for the CCU (Conjuring Cinematic Universe… I did that. It’s a thing now):
The franchise has been haunted by a couple spooky lawsuits, including one from the owners of the house featured in The Conjuring. They’re suing Warner Bros. and co. over vandalism to their home, which is surprising. I can’t think of any other instance in which fans disregarded the well being of others.
Another lawsuit was filed by George Brittle, and this one’s a doozy: George is the author of The Demonologist, which is a book about Ed and Lorraine Warren (the proton-packless Ghostbusters from the flicks). George claimed that he had a contract with The Warrens over exclusive rights to the contents of the book. Warner Bros. claimed that their films were based on “historical facts.” Long story short, Warner Bros. nearly had to prove that ghosts exist in order to win the trial. Instead, they took the lame-ass route and settled with George in 2017.
