San Francisco lawyer Stacey Stillman has been counter-slammed with a $5 million suit from the same folks she recently sued. The “Survivor” contestant — who was voted off the island and claims producers rigged the show — was sued Tuesday for defamation and breach of contract. The suit, filed in San Francisco superior court, seeks at least $5 million in damages along with court costs. It claims Stillman — the third person kicked off the island — “has engaged in a concerted pattern of breaching her agreements, including leaking, granting interviews and misrepresenting and disclosing confidential information” about “Survivor.” The suit by the producers, Santa Monica, Calif.-based Survivor Entertainment Group Inc., requests an injunction barring her from further disclosures. Stillman, who is looking for an attorney, works for Palo Alto, Calif.-based Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. Stillman sued CBS Corp. for fraud earlier this month, claiming “Survivor” creator Mark Burnett convinced two fellow contestants to vote her off the island. CBS, which aired the show, denied the allegations. The new suit claims Stillman launched an extortion campaign to get money from the producer, CBS and others, and urged other “Survivor” participants to join her. None did, according to the suit. In January, Stillman “expressly threatened to generate national publicity about her false allegations unless she was paid off,” the suit alleges. Copyright 2001 Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.
