Katherine Heigl Sues Duane Reade & 8 Other Ridiculous Celeb-Related Lawsuits

I guess her argument is that they used her image to promote their stores without her permission and without paying her, which isn't okay because she is "a highly successful television and motion picture actress, producer and celebrity" in "high demand."
