‘Boyhood’ director loses suitAUSTIN, Texas - “Boyhood’’ director Richard Linklater has again lost a lawsuit against his insurance company over what he says was $500,000 in property and film memorabilia destroyed by Texas wildfires in 2011.
A Texas appeals court this week upheld an earlier ruling against Linklater, who lost old scripts, videos and memorabilia from “Dazed and Confused’’ and other films in the massive blaze.
The director used a storage building in Bastrop County as an archive for his career.
Truck Insurance Company denied Linklater’s claim on the basis that the storage building was not covered by the filmmaker’s policy.
The deadly wildfires near Austin destroyed more than 1,600 homes in 2011.
