PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - Two Florida women have sued "Girls Gone Wild" creator Joseph Francis and his film company. They claim a sexually explicit video of them was released without their consent.
The federal lawsuit filed in Panama City says that Brooke Pastolic and Christina Brose were promised free clothes if they boarded a "Girls Gone Wild" tour bus. They allegedly were given alcohol even though both were younger than 21.
The lawsuit says the cameramen then coerced the women into exposing themselves and engaging in sexual activities, but repeatedly stated the footage would not be used. But the footage did appear on two separate "Girls Gone Wild" DVDs.
The lawyer for Francis' Mantra Films tells The News Herald that "Girls Gone Wild" crews don't serve alcohol on their tour buses and ask women for identification to verify their age.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
