Tara Reid can’t figure out how to follow through with her $100 million lawsuit and now the actress is being warned by the court to hurry up or risk having the lawsuit sleep with the fishes.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the court told Reid earlier this month that she has failed to act in the case she filed against “Sharknado” producers.
The court notice informs Reid that she has not filed proof of service, basically showing she has served the defendants with the lawsuit. She has until the end of the month to explain herself or the entire case will be dismissed.
As The Blast first reported, Tara Reid sued Asylum Entertainment and SYFY Media Productions, accusing them of false endorsement and misappropriation of celebrity likeness.
Reid believes the defendants wrongfully licensed the rights to use her likeness, which they do not own, to “manufacturers of slot machines, gambling products and beer makers, who in turn have marketed their product with her likeness, and continue to wrongfully trade and profit therefrom.”
The actress claims they licensed her image to a third party without her consent and made millions in profits off the gaming machines.
She claims her contract was very specific that her face could not be used in “Sharknado” promotional material if it related to tobacco, gambling, hygiene or sexual products.
Reid is demanding a jackpot of no less than $100 million in damages for the breaches of their deal and an injunction prohibiting from her face continuing to be used on the machines and products.
The case is ongoing.
