Siegal v. Kardashian, No. 09-93439 CA 15 (Fla. Cir. Ct. Dec. 29, 2009)

Status: Pending

Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet website has a page that links to news articles and press mentions of the diet. Several of these links suggested that Kim Kardashian was a fan of the diet. In October 2009, she took it upon herself to Tweet that she thought the diet was "unhealthy" and that the company was lying. On Dec. 25, her lawyers sent the site a cease and desist letter, asking that references to Kardashian be taken down.

Dr. Siegal brought suit Dec. 29, alleging that both the doctor and his company were defamed by the Tweets.

As of Jan. 6, 2010, there are no links on The Cookie Diet site to Kardashian.
