Bengals cheerleader gets day in court over posting
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - January 11, 2012 (WPVI) -- A woman who worked as a Kentucky high school teacher and moonlights as a Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader will get to press her lawsuit against a website and its owner over lewd online comments about her that made her life at school so uncomfortable she quit her teaching job.
U.S. District Judge William O. Bertelsman set a June 4 trial date in Covington for Sarah Jones' defamation and invasion of privacy lawsuit against the website, www.thedirty.com, and its owner, Hooman Karamian, who goes by the name Nik Richie.
Two postings in 2009 prompted the case. Jones twice asked that the posts be taken down. Richie refused both times.
Jones resigned from her teaching job in November. She is still on the Bengals' roster as a cheerleading captain.
