As if coming up empty handed at the Oscars Sunday night wasn't bad enough, now Quentin Tarantino's got a lawsuit on his hands. The 'Inglourious Basterds' writer-director is being sued for plagiarism by a man who claims that the auteur took an idea for a character in 'Kill Bill' from him.

According to papers that were filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (and obtained by E! Online), Dannez Hunter alleges that Tarantino took parts of his script for 2003's 'Kill Bill' from a treatment that Hunter himself had submitted back in 1999.
