The fifth women's world chess champion seeks over USD 5 million in damages for what the suit claims is a "devastating falsehood, undermining and degrading her accomplishments before an audience of many millions."
The lawsuit is about a line in the last episode of the highly successful series that won two Golden Globes earlier last year.
While the main protagonist is playing a tournament in Moscow, a commentator says: "The only unusual thing about her, really, is her sex, and even that’s not unique in Russia”. There's Nona Gaprindashvili, but she’s the female world champion and has never faced men.
In September, Netflix refused to remove the disputed reference from the series, informing Gaprindashvili's representatives the company would not apologize for the selection of the description either.
