Strip club wins new venue in Catherine Zeta-Jones case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawsuit filed by Catherine Zeta-Jones over a Nevada strip club's use of her image will be transferred to a federal court there.

On Thursday, a judge granted a change of venue request by the club owner, who claimed the club didn't have links to California.

Zeta-Jones sued Reno-based The Spice House in October, alleging the club had 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 lawsuit said.

Jones, who won a best-supporting actress Oscar for 2002's "Chicago," seeks unspecified damages and an order barring further use of her likeness.
