Lara Bingle, tits out writs in

Lara Bingle

Call me a cynic but this whole bruhaha strikes me as being some sort of publicity stunt intended to reignite Ms Bingle’s flagging career after all who cares about a rather bad mobile photo of the lady with , surprise surprise, her kit off? The photo above shows just as much as the picture in question .

Nude photo ... Lara Bingle is reportedly set to sue Brendan Fevola Photo: Paul Harris and Helen Nezdropa

Nicholas Pullen, a partner at TressCox lawyers, said Bingle would struggle to sue Fevola successfully unless she could prove he (Fevola)provided the photograph to Woman’s Day.

‘‘Bingle would have to prove [the photograph] came from Fevola and then she would have to prove when Fevola sent it off; the reasonable person would expect it to end up in Woman’s Day,’’ Mr Pullen said.

He said succeeding with a defamation claim would also be difficult.

‘‘The next step in any defamation formula is: how is it making people think less of Lara Bingle than they already do. Well, she’s coming off a low base on that one.

‘‘In the version of the photograph I have seen, it doesn’t look like you are seeing terribly much more of Lara Bingle than you have already seen.

‘‘It would be a bit different if we were looking at a photograph of the Governor-General. So I think you can pretty well safely strike defamation off.’’

Mr Pullen said a claim for misuse of the model’s image would only be relevant if the photo was used to sell something.

‘‘That only comes into play if the photograph was being used to sell toothpaste or soap, for example,’’ he said.

‘‘Misuse is a term for merchandising, commercialising one’s image. This is clearly not the case.’’

If the Legal opinion above is correct  then issuing a writ that has no chance of success just has to be about things other than seeking legal redress. But just goes to show that being involved in transient sexual relationships is not always such a good idea no matter how hip and cool that you think you are ,Oh yeah It also shows that those fancy Mobile devices that do everything,  short of removing boy scouts from horses hooves, are not such a grand idea.

The law suit will, I expect, quietly go away once its maximum  publicity potential for Ms Bingle has been reached.

Cheers Comrades

    She’s probably more concerned with how plain she looks in Fevola’s shower snap. It’s not exactly sexy and not a great image for her. I don’t care about either of these two – she’s a gold-digger and he’s a yobbo – but I reckon Fevola is worse and an utter sleazebag. I actually hope Bingle is successful in suing him.

    Also, I imagine the “free” advertising from the media circus over the lawsuit, wouldn’t hurt the career either ?
    As for me ? Ho hum, sure it was the wrong thing to do, and he will pay for it (as every male on the planet does over time ?), but I don’t think anything death defying has happened to her career here ?

    I agree with all of your above as well Ray. Couldnt have said that any better.

    BTW ?
    Another home run, by a brain dead sportsman.
    It’s certainly becoming a cult with them isn’t it ?

    Lara looks dirty in your pic Iain but at least YOU are not unAustralian and you are prepared to show muff.

    Hi Iain
    Great blog. We did a legal analysis of her case at fortnightlyreview.info

    Look forward to your comments!!

    I liked the Moriarty blog. About the legal advice on misuse of photo for Lara Bingle. I think the magazine would stand to gain extra sales; therefore some room to move for her legal people. Regards

    Welcome to my blog Will,
    As a stay at home dad I am sure that you have spent your time lined up at the checkout of the supermarket and seen just how many gossip mags there are these days and there is an endless parade of celebrity tits and arse on display, despite the feminist claims that this is all about men wanting to exploit women I think there are lots of reasons to think that much of the interest in this sort of crap comes from the competitiveness( bitchiness?) of women themselves rather than any interest by men. After all if you really had a thing about Lara Bingle you can always go to you tube and down load the ad that made her “famous” which is far more arousing than one sourpuss pixilated photo that might just show her nipples.
