Maybe Civil Law Is More Interesting Than Criminal Law

Many of you probably saw this in the Star Telegram: Two girls, both 17, are on vacation at the beach. They see the Girls Gone Wild video crew, flash their ta-ta's (that's a legal term), tell the video guys that they are of legal age, and then sign a consent. Girls Gone Wild then produces a DVD where the 17 year olds' ta-ta's (I think the term has a Latin origin) are shown. So what happens? The girls sue. Even in conservative Denton County (where the mere utterance ot the word ta-ta's will get you arrested), a jury decided the girls didn't deserve a dime. Go Denton! Go Girls Gone Wild! Go ta........uh, nevermind.

You must have a high quality scanner to get that good of a picture of a box cover.

20/20 (or similar show) did a show a few years back w/ PTA Moms etc. who wanted to sue because they were showing their ta ta's on Girls Gone Wild. They were crying that they did this in their youth but now they were Moms and active in the community and this video needed to be stopped.

My thoughts were they should have kept their clothes on.

Another case of kids not understanding the ramifications of their actions - if you flash the camera it will come back to haunt you (says the girl w/questionable pics that did come back to haunt me :) Thankfully mine were funny and I had my clothes on.)
