'We're Not Cougars,' Women Say In Suit
Law Center | 2008/09/11 07:11
Three women say their girls' night out ended with a cable TV station setting them up to look like they were trolling for younger men, and then broadcasting the action as The Great Cougar Hunt.

Christine Torres and Charnette Hildreth say they were celebrating Tammi Tary's birthday at the Chapter Eight dance club when an employee of defendant G4 Media asked if he could videotape them. The women say they refused.

Later, they say, two young men sat down at their table and began talking with them. The women say the men turned out to be paid props whom G4 used to portray them falsely as cougars, or sexually cunning 35+ females on the hunt for a much younger energetic male.

At the end of the evening, the women say, G4 employees approached them again, asking them to sign a release consenting to G4's use of their voices and likenesses. The women say they refused.

Eight months later, the women say, they discovered The Great Cougar Hunt on G4's cable station. The video portrayed their birthday party as a group of older women looking for younger men at a world famous cougar hot spot.

According to the complaint, the video describes cougars as the easiest, most ravenous prey for younger men.

The women say they were not attempting to meet or 'hunt' younger men. They say they do not even date younger men.

The plaintiffs say the defendants have lined their own pockets with a video that has exposed them to contempt and ridicule and has caused others to shun or avoid (them).

G4 originally was devoted to gaming programming, but now bills its content as general male-interest programming.

The women demand punitive damages of at least $1 million. They are represented by Neville Johnson in Superior Court.
