Yankees Fan Caught on Camera Sleeping During Game, Sues ESPN for Defamation

Litigious America.

Slate reports:
In a move that seems akin to suing the “Kiss Cam” for sexual harassment, a fan caught napping on camera during a recent Yankees-Red Sox game is suing ESPN for defamation for its coverage of his power nap. More specifically, 26-year-old Andrew Rector is seeking $10 million in damages from ESPN because the network’s cameras caught Rector snoozing in the stands and, according to the complaint, “opened an unending verbal crusade against the napping plaintiff.”
