Court OKs right to sue in 'Girls Gone Wild' case

By Associated Press

POSTED:



ATLANTA >> Georgia's highest court has ruled that a woman who was 14 when she exposed her breasts during spring break in Florida to a man with a video camera has grounds to sue under Georgia law.

The man sold the clip of Lindsey Bullard for use in a "Girls Gone Wild" video. Bullard sued in federal court, seeking damages in 2004 after her image was used on a video cover and in television and online advertisements.

A federal judge says Georgia law on the matter was unclear and asked the Georgia Supreme Court to clarify whether Bullard had a viable claim.

In a unanimous opinion published today, the high court says Bullard has the right to sue for "appropriation of likeness" under Georgia law despite the tape being shot in Florida.
