Zeta's strip bar battle spills out

May 22 2005

Wales on Sunday

 

A LAWSUIT filed by actress Catherine Zeta Jones over a Nevada strip club's use of her image will be transferred to a federal court.

Swansea's Zeta Jones sued Reno-based The Spice House in October, alleging the club used her image for advertising on its web site without her permission.

Her image was sometimes displayed alongside partially-nude women, creating the false impression that she "endorsed or approved of the sexually explicit content" and could "dilute the value of her celebrity endorsement," the suit states.

The actress seeks unspecified damages and to bar further use of her likeness.

A judge granted a change of venue request by the club owner, who claimed the club did not have links to California.
