Topless mermaid lawsuit tossed out of court

NEW YORK (AP) - September 24, 2008

Maria Kristina Dominguez sued rap mogul Sean Combs and Vibe magazine over a topless picture of her.

The photo shows the hedge fund manager and two other women in topless mermaid costumes at a party thrown by Combs.

It was published in the November 2006 issue of Vibe.

A New York judge has tossed out the three million dollar lawsuit.

The judge noted the woman can't claim an invasion of privacy when she was only wearing pasties.

A lawyer says Dominguez is considering her legal options.
