Lawsuit of the Day: Tapes on a Plane

Tired of being motherf**king taped on your motherf**king plane? Then file a lawsuit over it — and win millions of dollars. From the AP:

The owner of a air charter service was ordered to pay attorney Mark Geragos and an associate several million dollars for ordering the secret videotaping of Michael Jackson and the lawyers as they flew with the pop star to his surrender on molestation charges in 2003.

According to court papers obtained Monday, Superior Court Judge Soussan G. Bruguera ordered XtraJet owner Jeffrey Borer and his company to pay Geragos at least $10 million and possibly up to $18 million in compensatory and punitive damages. Geragos’ colleague Pat Harris was awarded between $1.25 million and $2.25 million in damages.

Wow. That’s a helluva lot of cash for being videotaped. With your clothes on.
