Frank Sinatra and columnist Lee Mortimer appear in court in 1947 after an altercation at Ciro’s nightclub where Sinatra punched Mortimer. Sinatra claimed that Mortimer, who had repeatedly bashed Sinatra in his column, used a racial slur against Sinatra which provoked him. The two eventually reached a settlement of $9,000. This was one of several events that sent Sinatra’s career downhill, where it would remain until 1953.
