Playgirl's Pitt Stop
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ordered a recall of this month's Playgirl magazine, which published unauthorized nude photographs of actor Brad Pitt.
Even though lawyers for Playgirl said the issue has sold out, they immediately filed a notice of appeal, temporarily delaying the effect of the judge's order.
Last month Judge Robert H. O'Brien ordered Playgirl to halt distribution of its current issue, featuring the cover story and the headline "Brad Pitt Nude!" The photos show Pitt and then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow cavorting naked on a Caribbean island two years ago.
Pitt sued the magazine in July, alleging invasion of privacy and infliction of emotional distress. The dispute has made the issue a collector's item, and ads have appeared offering to sell copies for $50 or more. Stones Ready to Roll
