Social Worker Sues Orlando Magic
Social worker Kristi Slavin is suing the Orlando Magic for using a photo of her cheering at a game in advertisements, including on a bus, this Orlando Sentinel article said.
Slavin said the team profited from her image and that she suffered embarrassment from friends, family and co-workers who asked why are image was all over town. Slavin, who works with mentally ill and homeless clients, is seeking in excess of $15,000 in damages, the statutory limit for a civil claim.
A legal expert said Slavin likely will not win. She is not a public figure who depends on her image for her livelihood.
And the Orlando Magic have a policy printed on the back of their tickets that said they can use images of fans who attend games. By buying the ticket Slaving gave the team that right, the expert said.| Leave A Comment
