Judge R. Gary Klausner of U.S. District Court for the Central District of California awarded Eastwood and the company that manages his image rights, Garrapata, $6 million for unauthorized use of his name and likeness after the Lithuanian company, Mediatonas UAB did not respond to a court summon in March.
