Nancy Benoit Vs. Hustler Lawsuit Update Inside
Nancy Benoit's family returned to court today in an appeals hearing from their lawsuit against Hustler Magazine. Hustler published nude photos of a young Nancy from 1983 in the wake of her death at Chris Benoit's hands and the family sued the magazine as a result. The family lost the suit as the judge said that the photos were "newsworthy" and the family filed an appeal, which caused the decision to be overturned in favor of the family.
The family also filed a lawsuit against Dr. Phil Aston, who was the Benoits' doctor, but that case was dismissed in 2012.
