Status: Withdrawn by plaintiff.
Vision Media TV Group allegedly contacted Leslie Richard, saying that it would feature her eco-friendly fashion business in a report to be aired on PBS and CNN. But then the company told Richard that she would have to pay $22,900 in production fees and $3,000 in airfare. Richard wrote about the incident on her blog for her business, the Oko Box blog, http://oko-organic-clothing.blogspot.com/, calling it a “scam.” The television company then filed suit, but dropped the case in October 2008.
