Spitzer call girl sues Girls Gone Wild owner...


...here in the Southern District of Florida. Here's the complaint (Ashley Dupre v. Joseph Francis, et al), filed by attorney Richard Wolfe.


Here's some coverage by the Herald:


Five years after Girls Gone Wild filmed the unknown teen cavorting topless in South Beach, the now-notorious Ashley Alexandra Dupré is demanding a cut of the money from the video sales.
Dupré filed a lawsuit Monday in federal court in Miami, claiming Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis and his company owe her more than $10 million.
Now 22 (turning 23 Wednesday), Dupré was a few weeks shy of her 18th birthday when she ran into Francis' film crew outside Miami Beach's Chesterfield Hotel in March 2003. They got her drunk and filmed her flashing her breasts in hotel rooms, according to the suit.
Francis, 35, who arrived in Miami on Monday to promote his new Girls Gone Wild magazine, told The Miami Herald he has ''never sold one'' video of Dupré and referred questions to his attorneys.
Francis repackaged the footage last month after Dupré emerged as a central figure in the high-priced prostitution scandal that ensnared New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, leading to his resignation. Investigators say Spitzer paid big bucks for sexual encounters with Dupré, who worked as an escort named ``Kristen.''

Now I know why she called me. I'm sorry I didn't go to that swanky sobe hotel at 1am to meet her. Of course I have no idea how to sue anybody, and what would the referal fee have been anyway?

On a serious note, I encourage readers to go to the broward blog and read Bill Gelin's post on Judge Gardiner in Broward. What he is doing is courageous to say the least. (Perhaps professionally suicidal as well). But the man has guts.

Girls Gone Wild is a total rip off. I do not share men’s affection with porn. That is why I think this is a kind of abuse. And they still order products, complain about inconveniences and delivery misunderstandings. What sick people started it?

Hello! Your blog is rather interesting. I have nothing positive to say about Girls Gone Wild. I have always been against such types of sites. But when I saw it on www.pisedconsumer.com I was astonished. The thing is that it has so many customers! Unbeliveble! And even they are dissatisfied taking into consideration the amount of negative reports posted by the customers.
