Julie Taymor: I was a victim of 'Spider-Man' plot

Director Julie Taymor has hit back at her former creative partners in "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark," arguing in court papers that she was the victim of a conspiracy to unfairly push her out of the Broadway production.
Taymor's legal team on Friday defended the Tony Award winner against a countersuit from producers, the latest installment in their bitter legal battle over financial rewards for Broadway's most expensive show.
Her lawyers allege that for months the producers "were secretly conspiring to oust Taymor and use and change her work without pay" even as they urged her to continue working.
Taymor was the original "Spider-Man" director and co-book writer. She was fired in March after years of delays, accidents and critical backlash over the musical.
