Model lawsuit

In 1986, Russell Christoff, a model living in Los Angeles, did a 2-hour modelling session for Nestle and then never heard from them again. Flash forward to 2002, when he went out shopping and saw his own face on a jar of Taster’s Choice and decided to sue the company for using his image without compensation.
Mr. Christoff was just awarded $15.6 million for his pain and suffering by a jury. Nestle had offered to settle for $100,000, while Mr. Christoff thought a fair share was more like $8.5 million.
Nestle will appeal.
