PARIS - A French prosecutor told a court on Wednesday she is seeking 10,000 euros ($14,350) in damages from British designer John Galliano to compensate people he allegedly hurled anti-Semitic abuse at.

Prosecutor Anne de Fontette said she is seeking damages of up to 5,000 euros for each plaintiff in two cases against Galliano, whose towering career has been derailed by a series of apparently drunken outbursts to strangers in past months.

No prison sentence is being sought.

Galliano -- who was fired by fashion empire Dior in March after a video posted online showed him telling a woman he loved Hitler and that her parents might have been gassed in a Nazi death camp -- told the court that he was so out of control on drink and drugs that he cannot recall making the insults.
