Diaz's publicist, Brad Cafarelli, confirmed Friday that a Los Angeles judge has awarded Diaz statutory damages in topless pics case
Cameron Diaz's publicist, Brad Cafarelli, has on Friday March 31st, 2006 confirmed that a Los Angeles judge has awarded Diaz statutory damages over the illicit sale of topless photos of her taken ten years ago before she became an A-list actress.
To your notice, Diaz sued photographer John Rutter in 2004 after he tried to get her to buy the photos from him for $3.3 million. And when she refused, he threatened to sell them to a European advertising agency for $5 million.
Moreover, Cafarelli also confirmed that the judge also dismissed a countersuit filed against Diaz by Rutter accusing her of fraud and breach of contract. A further ruling is expected on whether Rutter must foot Diaz's legal bill.
