Abuse Victim Says Deposition Service Gave Her Testimony To Tabloids

SAN DIEGO (CN) - A video deposition service gave a copy of a woman's videotaped deposition about her sexual abuse by her father to a Village Voice reporter, who published a story about it and posted it online under the headline: "Daddy's Girl: Fisher Island millionaire ... loved his daughter so much, he married her," the woman claims in Superior Court.

Plaintiff Linda S. says the deposition was given in the course of civil litigation against her father. She says the Texas-based Henjum Goucher Reporting Services had no right to give the video to a non-party, and the other defendants refused her requests through her attorney that they pull the video. She claims Goucher gave the video to "Kelly Cramer, a tabloid news reporter for Village Voice". She demands punitive damages for privacy invasion from Goucher, Village Voice Media, YouTube, and LiveUniverse. She is represented by John Gomez. See complaint.
