Let me get this straight....so she will go out in public for the world to see her in a bikini, but now she DOESN'T want people to see her in a bikini? If you go out in public, can you sue people for looking at you? If you did it in public what is different about a picture? people and their privacy seriously make no sense to me at all.

might come down to the "friends" feature in terms of who can see it.

I know she is bringing that up but I mean, she is at the beach, with hundreds, maybe even thousands of "non-friends" seeing her in a bikini and she doesn't sue any of them... why not?

This case should be thrown out as soon as it hits the judge's desk.

It's funny, now you can use Google Images and find the same exact image that - "horrified and embarrassed" her, used with her permission (or there could be more lawsuits on the way) and now forever veiwable by several million more people.

 

Way to keep that private stuff.. well private.. or is she hoping to launch her career without having to acutally film a "secret" porn vid that some how gets leaked?

And now that she called attention to it, everyone with internet access has seen it...probably just an attention ######.

She's obviously an attention seeker... first for posting such pictures and second for making a big deal out of it.

 

America is a lot more prude than I thought if bikinis and bikini photos are attention seeking. over here we call them vacation photos since it's what women generally wear on vacation and thus on their vacation photos :)

I was actually referring to standing next to Snoop Dogg, not the bikini. As for the bikini, I'm just glad she's not obese because then I'd be the one who is horrified.

$2 million? Really? If she can prove that the school used a photo of a known student, and it was set to friends of friends then she has every right to complain, but I don't get why it has to be so much money.

 

I see people putting stuff on Facebook all the time that with second thought shouldn't be there, people really do lack common sense sometimes.

The only thing I see is a girl on vacation having a photo taken next to a cardboard version of snoop. That said I have no idea why the school would put any other meaning behind it but that.. There's nothing revealing, sensual or exciting about the photo. It's just some prude retarded person who reads way to much into this. I'd agree this would mean that the school is unjustified making an example out of her without any reason.

 

So does she have ground for a complaint? Certainly.. Is it worth $2M? Only in America.. The land of 'If you do not like it, sue..'

Well, remember, her lawyer needs a cut of the profits. :p

Facebook could get into trouble as well for having the images posted publicly as well if it was a permission bug

I don't see this going anywhere as long as the school official didn't deliberately go to her facebook knowing that she was a former student to get the picture. Any other non-fb source is fair game as it tends to be more anonymous. Not that hard for one of her friends download and re-up that image to any one of the numerous tumblr blogs which hot bikini pics.
