News Digest: Priscilla wins damages.

LOS ANGELES: A jury awarded Priscilla Presley pounds 1.74 million in damages against film producers and publicists who used her name to promote a proposed film based on an unauthorised biography.

"I have always done everything in my power to protect my name, and I am willing to continue to do so in the future if that's what's necessary," Ms Presley said in California.

Ms Presley, who was married to singer Elvis Presley, also sued Currie Grant, one of the primary sources for the biography, Child Bride, and obtained a defamation judgment against him last year.
