LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A book publishing company filed a lawsuit
Wednesday against Heather French Henry, claiming the former Miss
America agreed to help fund and promote a children's book series
she wrote, but didn't do so.
Woodland Hills, Calif.-based Cubbie Blue Publishing, which filed
the civil suit in Jefferson County Circuit Court, is seeking
damages of more than 350-thousand dollars and lost profits from the
book project, "Claire's Adventure Series," The Courier-Journal of
Louisville reported on its Web site.
The suit claims that on March 31, 2003, Henry agreed to write
and fund the book series, use her fame to promote it and be
available for a "book tour and promotional campaign."
But Henry only provided part of the start-up capital for the
project and did not fully promote it, leaving the publishing
company with a "significant debt," according to the lawsuit.
Henry, who is married to former Lieutenant Governor Steve Henry,
says she is aware of the lawsuit and that she and her attorneys are
reviewing her legal options.
