Why Carmen Electra and other models and actresses are suing strip clubs across the country

Professional models and actresses, including Carmen Electra, Megan Daniels and Jaime Edmondson Longoria, have sued more than 50 strip clubs and adult entertainment venues in federal court in at least eight states.

The models say these clubs use their photos in advertisements and promotions without permission and without pay. Court documents state these ads also mislead consumers because these models have never appeared or worked at the clubs using their photos.

The Enquirer found active cases in Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Colorado and Ohio.

Fourteen models filed suit against a Columbus, Ohio swing club on Wednesday. This is the 13th such suit filed in Ohio this year, and some suits name multiple clubs.

The models submitted more than 100 pages of Facebook and Twitter promotions to the court advertising events like “The Little Black Dress Party,” “Hot Fudge Party,” “Lingerie Party” and a “Peek A Boob See Thru Party.”
