Woman And Playboy Enterprises Settled Lawsuit With Allegation She was Hurt By Host Of The Playboy Morning Show

playboy_logo_2598A woman and Playboy Enterprises settled a lawsuit in which the plaintiff alleged she was hurt when a co-host of The Playboy Morning Show struck her in the buttocks with a golf club during a photo shoot at the Playboy Golf Finals in 2012.

An attorney for Elizabeth Dickson told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Holly Fujie on Monday that the case was resolved. No terms were divulged.

Dickson filed her lawsuit in March 2014, alleging battery and negligence. She sought unspecified damages.

According to the complaint, Dickson, a model, was invited to the Playboy Golf Finals at the Industry Hills Golf Club in Industry on March 30, 2012, where she was to help Playboy Playmates host the event.

Dickson agreed to have a photo taken of her lying on her stomach “with her buttocks partially exposed” while Kevin Klein, co-host of Playboy’s radio  show, stood poised to hit a golf ball put atop a tee that was inserted between  the cheeks of her buttocks, the suit stated.

However, Klein unexpectedly swung the club and “struck plaintiff on the buttocks, causing her injuries and damages,” the suit alleged.

Attorneys for Playboy maintained in their court papers that Dickson signed releases beforehand agreeing to not hold the company liable for any legal claims associated with her taking part in the event.

“Dickson was not required to or forced to participate in this contest or event,” Playboy’s attorneys stated in their court papers.

Dickson will suffer pain, suffering, worrying and anxiety as a result of her injuries, the suit stated.
