Accountability? Yeah…That’s It

From Yahoo! News:

Woman sues over Janet Jackon’s breast

Fri Feb 6, 1:28 PM ET

CHICAGO (Reuters) – A Tennessee woman has filed a class action suit against Janet Jackson and others involved in her breast-baring Super Bowl halftime show, saying millions of people are owed monetary damages for exposure to lewd conduct.


The action seeks a court order to prevent anything like last Sunday’s stunt from being repeated on U.S. network television prior to 10 p.m. local time when children might be watching.


The law firm handling the suit issued a statement on Friday saying that neither the woman who filed it, Terri Carlin, nor her attorney, Wayne Ritchie, would comment. “The issue here is accountability and not more publicity,” it said. [Emphasis added.]

Yeah, right.
