Anakha's Stoopid Lawsuit of the Week


Anakha's Stoopid Lawsuit of the Week

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (AP) -- Less than a week after filing a class-action lawsuit because of her outrage over Janet Jackson's Super Bowl stunt, Terri Carlin believes she's made her point.

The Knoxville banker is withdrawing the suit filed last Wednesday in U.S. District Court against Jackson and Justin Timberlake, along with MTV, CBS and their parent company, Viacom.

The lawsuit had sought billions of dollars in compensatory and punitive damages.

Carlin alleged that she and others who watched the show during the Super Bowl were injured by the performers' lewd actions when Timberlake tore off part of Jackson's costume, exposing her right breast.

The notice of dismissal filed in federal court says Carlin wants to see if "remedial measures" announced by federal regulators and the companies involved succeed in preventing similar stunts.

Carlin and attorney Wayne A. Ritchie II, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Carlin and has represented her for free, have received phone calls and mail from hundreds of supportive parents from across the country who wanted to be included in the suit, the notice states.

In the lawsuit filed on behalf of "all Americans," Carlin charged that Jackson's exposure and "sexually explicit conduct" by other performers during the halftime show injured viewers.

Jackson apologized for the incident, saying a red lace garment was supposed to remain over her breast when an outer garment was ripped away.

ARGH! A breast! I'm injured!!!

Look lady, I highly doubt you'd be filing this lawsuit if you had just seen the performance without the breast incident, so let's drop this "sexually explicit conduct" crap. You see more explicit stuff on beer commercials and on the cover of Cosmo at the supermarket checkout. And if you weren't offended by the show before the incident, you sure as hell weren't injured just because you saw less of the same thing that you see in the mirror every morning. Holy crap.

Neither you, nor the other oversensitive wingnuts who think a breast is some evil flesh-beast, deserve BILLIONS of dollars in compensation for seeing a tit.

It's a good thing you dropped the lawsuit, lest you look even more like a boob than the one you're offended by.
