Farmer files lawsuit over use of his picture –

Andrew Marsinko didn’t know that a photo taken of him with a goose had been used in a slightly naughty birthday card until complete strangers started poking fun at him.

Now the Botetourt County poultry farmer has responded with a lawsuit intended to cook the goose of everyone involved.

The complaint filed in Roanoke County Circuit Court seeks $7.5 million in damages from the photographers who took the photo, the companies that offered the photo as a stock image and the companies that created and sold the card.
