MTV Networks’ on-air personality Tom Green and C.K. Gillen, the producer of the “Tom Green Show,” are being sued for invasion of privacy over a show segment. Jeffrey Spector claims in his suit in Los Angeles Superior Court that one afternoon last year, he was proceeding toward the entrance of the Metro Red Line-Pershing Square station in downtown L.A. when he was confronted by Green in a wheelchair. According to the complaint, Green was “proceeding at an unsafe speed and crashed down steps of the Metro Red Line station,” causing Spector to be “momentarily stunned but [he] quickly realized the incident was some type of stunt or hoax.” The suit further states that Spector was asked to sign a release, but he declined, and that, since Feb. 15, 2000, the defendants have broadcast Spector’s likeness without permission at least eight times in a sketch called “Lucille, Loose Wheel.” Spector is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. Mario R. Rivera of Encino, Calif.’s Shelden and Kulchin is representing Spector. Spector v. MTV Networks, BC230574.
