Jamie Lynn Spears look-alike sues LAPD for being used as a decoyJanuary 8th, 2009 - 2:04 pm ICT by ANI
London, January 8 (ANI): A Jamie Lynn Spears lookalike is taking LAPD to court, claiming damages worth 1.3 million pounds, after she was used as a decoy for Britneys younger sister without being informed.
Adessa Eskeridge is considering her legal options against the department after she was put on the same flight as Jamie last September.
In order to prevent paparazzi from mobbing the young actress, the officials had used Adessa to sidetrack attention, reports the Sun.
Her lawyer R. J Molligan said: “Adessa was not given any details as to the nature of the task or of the potential danger involved. She simply followed the instructions of the police as most good citizens would do.
The team also claimed that: “The LAX police did not want to subject Ms. Spears to the pushing, shoving, humiliation and possible physical injury that come with the paparazzi, but instead decided that Ms Eskeridge was not important enough to give the same protections to.
Molligan further alleged that Adessa was never informed that upon deplaning, she would be mobbed by the paparazzi, that she would be in fear of her well-being, that her picture would be taken, (and) that video of her would be all over the Internet.
She added her client was deceived and manipulated by the offcials and claimed she has suffered and continues to suffer great humiliation post the incident.
LAPD are yet to comment on the case. (ANI)
