4 Actresses to Sue Over Nude Photos on Net

April 08, 1999|Greg Miller

Four actresses are expected to file lawsuits in federal court in Los Angeles today in an effort to force operators of several Web sites to remove nude pictures of them. Mitchell Kamarck, a Beverly Hills attorney representing the women, succeeded in similar legal action against other Web site operators last year, winning a $238,000 judgment in one case. The actresses, who accuse the Web sites of right-of-publicity and privacy violations, are Alyssa Milano, Carmen Electra, Ami Dolenz and Patricia Apollonia Kotero. Targets of the suits include numerous individuals and companies associated with sites that allegedly post nude pictures of celebrities. The pictures typically range from outright fakes to frames illegally lifted from movies.
