A model who was slashed in the face with a razor filed suit Friday against the man convicted in the attack, which left her disfigured. The lawyer for Marla Hanson asked the court to proceed as if the amount were $500,000, although the lawsuit against Steven Roth did not specify damages. Hanson, 25, also sued Steven Bowman and Darren Norman, the men Roth allegedly hired to carry out the attack, and asked the court to freeze the assets of all three.
