Lesbian tennis legend Martina Navratilova has filed suit in federal court to block a gay-friendly credit card company from continuing to use her image in its promotions, but the card company has now fired back with counterclaims that accuse Navratilova of lodging false accusations in an attempt to "destroy" the company. According to court papers, the dispute grew heated when Navratilova objected to the Rainbow Card being associated with the cable television soap operas "The L Word" and "Queer as Folk."
