Ms. Vinick, who prosecuted successful wage-theft lawsuits on behalf of cheerleaders against the Oakland Raiders and the New York Jets, discussed the merits of the case as well as the potential hurdles the former cheerleaders face. According to Ms. Vinick, while the women may have signed a release to allow the team use their pictures for the calendar, they may still have a case. “There is no reasonable expectation that when these women are signing away the rights to their images that they signed them away to be sliced and diced into a porn video,” opined Ms. Vinick.
