Playboy sues Chicago Lawyer who Had Posed for the Magazine

Playboy magazine has sued Corri Fetman, a Chicago lawyer who had posed nude for Playboy and used to write a advice column titled "Lawyer of Love", report ABA Journal and Chicago Sun Times. Playboy is complaining about Fetman's use of the phrase "Lawyer of Love", and her attempt to register this phrase as a trademark, because Playboy argues Fetman gave up any rights to this mark in her freelance agreement with Playboy.

According to Chicago Tribune, in March 2009 Corri Fetman filed a $5.4 Million sexual harassment lawsuit against Playboy, claiming Fetman lost her writing column with Playboy as a result of her resisting sexual advances by Playboy executive Thomas Hagopian.

Corri D. Fetman is a Chicago divorce lawyer at the law firm of Fetman, Garland & Associates Ltd. Her firm's web site, has a prominent "Playboy Press" page, and as well provides a link to "Love Lawyer Advice Blog" maintained by Ms. Fetman.
