Celebrities Threaten Google with $100 Million Lawsuit Over Leaked Nude Images
Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer of L.A.-based law firm Lively & Singer has just filed a suit against Google, representing many of the women whose privacy was violated in the nude photo leak.
In a letter, Marty says that Google has refused to take down photos of the nude celebrities in question.
“Google is making millions and profiting from the victimization of women,” the letter read, which was sent to Google execs CEO Larry Page and executive chairman Eric Schmidt, among others (via Variety). “As a result of your blatantly unethical behavior, Google is exposed to significant liability and both compensatory and punitive damages that could well exceed One Hundred Million Dollars ($100,000,000).”
The firm is also said to be representing “over a dozen female celebrities, actresses, models and athletes” whose privacy had been violated.
