UPDATED: July 15, 11:40 a.m. A DuPage County judge overturned a default hearing against adult film star Jenna Jameson this week, according to the Naperville Sun.

The story of a suburban theater owner's lawsuit against Jenna Jameson appears headed — for now, at least — toward an unhappy ending for the adult film star.

Patch first reported in June that Bulthaup sued Jameson — whose real name is Jenna Marie Massoli — after she skipped out on two heavily promoted meet-and-greet appearances at the theaters in March that coincided with special screenings of her 2008 movie Zombie Strippers! Jameson was served with the lawsuit on May 24 at her Huntington Beach, Calif., …

Resident Laurae Kozlik is a lifelong fan, avid collector and supporter of all things Oz.
There's no place like home for "The Wizard of Oz" fan Laurae Kozlik.

"I probably watch the movie four or five times a year, just by myself or with my fiance, Chris Dryjanski." Her enthusiasm for all things Oz has resulted in her becoming the goodwill ambassador for the International …
