Judge to decide on 'Imagine' case

A judge has promised a fast decision in a lawsuit brought by Yoko Ono to remove the song 'Imagine' from a movie challenging the concept of Darwinian evolution.

A lawyer for the film’s distributors has warned the litigation could wreck the movie’s political message.

US District Judge Sidney Stein said he will rule quickly in the case after both sides described the issues surrounding the song and movie in harsh terms during arguments.

Lawyer Anthony T. Falzone said the movie, 'Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed', was set to open in Canada on June 6 and DVD rights needed to be finalised by the end of May for distribution in October.

The movie is currently being shown in about 200 cinemas in the United States.
