TV Newser Sues Over False Porno Photos

WHBQ-TVImage via WikipediaThe U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee will hear a $50 million defamation case filed by a Chicago-native Memphis television reporter who claims the defendants posted false pornographic images purporting to be her online under the title: "Chicago Girls Need to Be Exposed."

The 14-page, nine-count Complaint in Lauren Lee Gauck v. Hooman Karamian a/k/a/Corbin Grimes a/k/a Nik Richie & Dirty World LLC et al. (Case No. 2:2011-cv-02346), includes claims alleging defamation, false light, misappropriation, emotional distress, intrusion and civil conspiracy. Gauck, 29,  known on-air as Lauren Lee, is a reporter for WHBQ-TV "Fox 13" in Memphis, according to an article on the Website of the Memphis Commercial Appeal. Karamian, 32, of Scottsdale, Arizona, recently changed his name to Nik Lamas-Richie after marrying Shayne Lamas, the winner of "The Bachelor" reality show.

The complaint alleges the defendants' Website attracted 22,000 hits before the nude images that the plaintiff claims are not her were temporarily removed. The defendant touts himself as "The World's First Ever Reality Blogger" and concentrates on depicting embarrassing images and negative commentary of celebrities and non-famous individuals as well.
