Catherine Bosley wins lawsuit against Hustler over photo of her naked in bar
CLEVELAND – Catherine Bosley, an Ohio TV newswoman has won a lawsuit against Hustler magazine over publication of a photograph showing her naked in a wet T-shirt contest.
The Plain Dealer newspaper reports a federal jury Thursday sided with Catherine Bosley and her husband over an image taken at a Florida bar in 2003. The jury granted them $135,000 plus attorney fees.
Bosley and her husband gained copy rights to her contest photos after a photographer posted them online. She has resigned from WKBN-TV in Youngstown and now works at WOIO-TV in Cleveland.
Larry Flynt’s Hustler magazine published one of the photos in 2006. The 2008 lawsuit claimed the publication unsuccessful to get Bosley’s permission to print the photo. Hustler’s attorneys argued they didn’t need permission.
It is not clear if Hustler Inc. will appeal the decision.
