Lawyers for Adessa Eskeridge say the so-called Jamie Lynn Spears decoy is “willing to consider a reasonable and fair settlement that fully compensates her for the humiliation, fear and harassment that she has been subjected [to] at the hands of LAX-PD.”
A woman police used as a decoy for Jamie Lynn Spears at Los Angeles International Airport last September is demanding airport security pay her $2 million for public humiliation.
Attorneys for Adessa Eskeridge have filed a claim for damages against the LAX Police Department, suggesting that the was used as a “decoy” for the teenage sister of pop star Britney Spears in September 2008 without her consent.
Adessa claims she was “deceived and manipulated” by the LAX Police and “suffered and continues to suffer great humiliation” as a result of the incident.
Adessa claims LAX Police “did not want to subject Ms. Spears to the pushing, shoving, humiliation and possible physical injury that come with the paparazzi, but instead decided that Ms. Eskeridge was not important enough to give the same protections to.”
Attorney R.J. Molligan believes her client was “not given any details as to the nature of the task or of the potential danger involved. She simply followed the instructions of the police as most good citizens would do.”
Molligan maintains that Adessa “never informed that upon deplaning, she would be mobbed by the paparazzi, that she would be in fear of her well-being, that her picture would be taken, [and] that video of her would be all over the Internet.”
