St. Louis-area woman wins $5.8 million in 'Girls Gone Wild' case

ST. LOUIS -- The maker of "Girls Gone Wild" DVDs is seeking to overturn a judge's decision that awards nearly $6 million to a St. Louis-area woman who claimed her bare breasts were recorded without permission.

St. Louis Circuit Judge John Garvey awarded $5.77 million to Tamara Favazza. She was a college student in 2005 when someone lifted her shirt at a St. Louis bar. The image was part of the "Girls Gone Wild Sorority Orgy" DVD series.

Favazza sued Mantra Films and MRA Holdings LLC, claiming she did not give consent. A St. Louis jury sided with the DVD makers in 2010, but a retrial was granted, and Garvey issued his ruling on March 5.

On Wednesday, the defendants filed motions to set aside the judgment and asking for a new trial.
