An amended lawsuit has been filed see the link below.
Eight new Plaintiffs have been added to Kyle Hornback’s original lawsuit. Dillion Hornback, Jamie Smith, Marquease Richardson, Rebecca Sommer, Precious Burnley, Dolley Bolden, Jemiah Nash, and Shinita Martin.
The lawsuit has also expanded from the October 22nd lawsuit filed by Kyle Hornback to include Dick Cady, the co-author of “Breaking Cardinal Rules”.
Five of the Plaintiffs are alleging that the book falsely labels them as prostitutes. Stating in the lawsuit: “In the book, during interviews with the media, and appearances on various talk shows, Defendants impute and accuse these women of engaged in prostitution with recruits and students of the University of Louisville. These allegations are absolutely false. These Plaintiffs never gave any consent or permission to use their name, stage name, alias, photo, image, and/or likeness for this false, outrageous, horrendous, atrocious and heinous sex scandal.”
The lawsuit continued: “The allegations that Plaintiffs Nash, Richardson, Burnley, Martin and Bolden participated in, engaged in, promoted, advanced, or profited in any criminal act of prostitution are false. The publication of the false allegations set off a fire storm of damage to the reputation of the University of Louisville, the student body of the University of Louisville, and named plaintiffs.”
In regards to IBJ & Dick Cady the lawsuit states: “Their conduct was outrageous and intolerable and offends generally accepted standards of decency and morality.”
Hornback’s lawsuit is a class-action suit and demands that all funds Powell and IBJ receives for publishing her book or any appearances, movies, articles, radio or TV be held and compensated to the Plaintiffs.
Keith Poynter will update us later this evening from his legal perspective.
