Legal Capacity to Contract

I guess if the law says you have to be 18 to be legally capable of entering into a contract then so be it! It would seem that Ashley Alexandra Dupre might just have a case against the founder of Girls Gone Wild, Joe Francis.

It seems that Kristen of Client Number Nine fame was only 17 when Joe Francis filmed some video of her which was later used for promotions and other Girls Gone Wild activities. Dupre contends she was 17 and therefore unable to legally contract with Francis for the release and use of the video and other images.

It seems that Dupre feels sufficiently aggrieved by this turn of events to file suit for USD 10 million! I suppose if she wins then she won't need to be Kristen any more except if she wants to be!
