Gay Couple Wins TRO Against USA Next
A federal judge in Washington, DC just granted the gay couple's request for a Temporary Restraining Order against USA Next, requiring the organization to cease and desist from further use of the couple's photos for any purpose. This is a big deal because it means the judge has found that the guys have a very good chance of winning their case, and he also said he could see how they could get damages.
A consultant hired by USA Next, Mark Montini, took the photo from the Portland Tribune's Web site. He said Wednesday that ``it looks like we made a mistake'' in not first getting permission from the Tribune. ``At the end of the day the worst case scenario was something fell through the cracks in our office,'' he said in an interview.
