Lawsuit over the halftime baring

A 47-year-old bank employee in Knoxville sues claiming the Janet Jackson peek caused her and other viewers to “suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury.” Actual damages are not specified and punitive damages “should not exceed the gross revenues of all defendants for the past three years.” Defendants include Viacom, CBS, MTV, Janet and Justin Timberlake. The court filing is on The Smoking Gun, and you’ll see the shot that few actually saw, but many have seen since. The lawsuit was filed as a proposed class action lawsuit.

Update: The lawsuit was withdrawn Monday, reports.
