Question

Courtney, a 22- year- old call girl, became involved with a married politician who paid her several thousand dollars for an ongoing relationship. Once Courtney’s identity became known and her relationship with this politician discovered, newspapers and Web sites splashed photos of Courtney in suggestive poses along with write- ups on the front and inside pages. The photos distributed to the media actually came from MySpace pages. Her attorney lashed out at the media for thrusting the 22- year- old woman into the public light without her consent. The attorney, further contending that she was not a public figure, indicated that he was taking steps to bring a lawsuit for defamation against the various media outlets that published her image and wrote about her. A spokesperson for the media lashed back and stated that the photos that appeared on MySpace were found to be noteworthy since the politician was in a high- ranking position. The spokesperson also made the point that the photos distributed were relevant to the story about Courtney’s relationship with the politician. Do you think that Courtney’s attorney has a case?
