Jon Peters Lawsuit Allowed to Proceed

On the biography page for unsuccessful 2010 California Senate candidate Brian Quintana (pictured), there is absolutely no mention of Hollywood producer Jon Peters. But now that Quintana’s attempts to unseat Barbara Boxer have passed, it’s once more all about Peters, whose many credits encompass the original Batman and next year’s Superman: Man of Steel.

Last week, Quintana successfully deflected an attempt by Peters to have part or all of his wrongful termination and sexual harassment lawsuit against the producer dismissed in California Superior Court. The details of the original November 2008 motion by Quintana and January 2009 countersuit by Peters are suitably salacious, but what caught our attention was this typo in the Beverly Hills Courier.

Streisand-Ex Peters May Be Headed To Hoosgow

jonpeters.jpgJon Peters, the hairdresser-turned-producer who went on to co-chair Sony Pictures Entertainment with Peter Guber, may be headed for a small stint in jail, Page Six reports.

The Hollywood powerhouse behind “Superman Returns,” “Batman” and “Ali” is charged with multiple violations of his parole stemming from a drunk-driving plea. The Ventura County district attorney’s office says Peters is due in court on Jan. 16 to answer charges he failed to complete an alcohol-education program, or report to his probation officer, or complete community service.

What’s more, sources say, a document submitted by the four-times-divorced filmmaker is being examined for alleged forgery, as it shows he did a required 40 hours of community service – when he had really finished only four hours.

Peters pleaded no contest to DUI after dozing off on the 101 Freeway in Ventura on Feb. 11, 2006. He agreed to a sentence of three years probation and community service with Homeboy Industries, which helps ex-gang members go straight.

“[A] proof of completion was submitted to the court,” the source told Page Six. “When the charity was asked to confirm Jon had completed 40 hours by the deadline, they confirmed he had only done four . . . [The] Probation [department] has threatened to revoke his probation.” Homeboy Industries did not return repeated calls. A rep for Peters had no comment.

If Peters is found guilty of parole violation, he could be sent to jail.

It’s the latest legal woe for the onetime boyfriend of Barbra Streisand. He’s also being sued by two former female staffers who claim Peters sexually harassed them. In one, Blanca Hernandez claims Peters touched her breasts and buttocks, tried to push her onto his bed when he was naked, tried to kiss her breasts, and offered her money for sex. Peters denies the charges.
