An Alabama etiquette expert who was pranked in the hit "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" is suing the bad-mannered moviemakers.
Kathie Martin wants unspecified monetary damages for "commercial misappropriation, fraud, unjust enrichment, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress" from the movie's producers for her unwitting role.
Martin was featured giving etiquette advice to make-believe journalist Borat, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, and he shows her nude pictures of his apparently teenage son.
It's unclear why Martin is filing suit now. She told The Associated Press last year that she was "taken aback" by the bit.
"Unless you can figure it out for yourself, you have no way of knowing you have been tricked into being part of a childish prank with an R rating attached," she said. "And even if you figure it out, you've signed a release that Mr. Cohen's people say relinquishes any rights on your part to take action against them."
