Producer seeks to dismiss 'Stripper 101' lawsuit
Monday, May 21, 2012
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A July hearing has been set on a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by five instructors of the "Stripper 101" class and show on the Las Vegas Strip.
The instructors, in their complaint filed in Clark County District Court in March, claim they were secretly videotaped "performing very personal and private acts" while in the dressing room.
The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/KMxafC ) the suit claims the instructors were so upset after discovering two hidden video cameras in January that they suffered severe emotional distress.
But lawyer Jennifer Arledge, who represents Stripper 101 and its producer David Saxe, last month filed a motion asking that the suit be dismissed.
She denies instructors' allegations, saying they were surveillance cameras installed and used strictly for security purposes.
