    That link takes me to a log in page and won't let me view the article.

    Idiot. Some people just don't know when to stop. What the hell do you want pictures from a wedding of a marriage that has been divorced for? Just blows my mind how selfish some people are.

    This seems laughable on the face of it, if it weren't for the fact that this has been in the court system since 2009,
    and has already cost the studio almost $50,000.00 in legal fees, defending themselves from this delusional a$$#ole.

    Well, times are hard, seems like people tries just about everything to get a few $'s in their pockets.

    Pathetic none-the-less though

    This is awesome. I hope he wins and sets a precedent. There's lots of pictures of me playing soccer tournaments when I was younger that make me look lazy and gangly....I want better pictures!

    LOL. This will encourage a lot of new photographers to enter the business. It's crap like this that the rest of the world reads and laughs at us for... :sad:

    I should sue Kodak, and Fuji for all the lousy pictures I've taken on their film ...

    If I was the judge in this case I'd rule that the complainant should pay the defendants legal costs of $50,000, pay them $ 100,000 compensation for their pain and suffering, and the two divorcees be ordered by the court to re-create their wedding night :laugh:

    Probably Matt, but no more unfair than hounding an 87 year old WW11 veteran, his family and the business he spent a lifetime building up.

    I wasn't suggesting that her ex-husband should be excluded from the suggested remedy - although some appropriate substitute would clearly be needed for the "bride".

    Not with that hot wife you've been talking about. I understand you consider 69 to be a most appropriate age. :D

    I'm sure that idiot's friends are going to be thrilled to take time to show up at a re-creation of a failed wedding. :blink:


    Besides, what if the wrong person catches the bouquet the second time around? Or what if old Uncle Charlie died in say, 2005?
    What a dope.

    If I was the defendant in this case, I don't think I would spend £1 (or $1) defending it. I don't see how it has got to $50,000. It shouldn't have even got to court.

    If you don't defend you lose by default.

    I would defend.... I just wouldn't spend any money doing it.

    I doubt you are likely to collect money from the unemployed

    "If I was the judge in this case I'd rule that the complainant should pay the defendants legal costs of $50,000, pay them $ 100,000 compensation for their pain and suffering, and the two divorcees be ordered by the court to re-create their wedding night"

    There were some photos from my first wedding that I was less-than-thrilled with (I'm on marriage number two now, this one seems like it's going to work). But, seeing as how that marriage is over, the *last* thing I want to do is recreate the event. Yikes! I surely don't wish to have a visit with the ex-mother-in-law.

    The word "warped" simply leaps to mind here!
