FLORIDA — A former Florida State University student last week settled a privacy lawsuit against the producers of the voyeuristic video series, “Girls Gone Wild.”
Becky Lynn Gritzke, a one-time swimsuit calendar model, claimed in her lawsuit that the producers of “Girls Gone Wild” violated her privacy rights by videotaping her as she flashed her breasts on Bourbon Street during a 2000 Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans.
M.R.A. Holdings and Mantra Films, producers of the video, maintained that Mardi Gras is newsworthy, and people attending the outdoor event forfeit their right to privacy.
Gritzke’s lawyer stated in a press release that the financial terms of the settlement are confidential. M.R.A. Holdings LLC has agreed to stop distribution of all videos and advertisements featuring the student.
