Steve Harvey Wins Court Case Over Unreleased Comedy Tapes

By Firstladyb
STEVE HARVEY WINS COURT CASE OVER UNRELEASED COMEDY TAPES Steve Harvey has won his legal battle over unreleased comedy tapes.  The tapes reportedly include negative racial, gender, and sexual comments. A  jury in Texas agreed with Harvey that he didn’t breach contract with Joseph Cooper, who was hired back in 1993 to tape performances at Harvey’s Dallas club. The jury also found that Cooper misappropriated Harvey’s name or likeness in attempting to commercially exploit the tapes. The jury also found  that a videographer didn’t have a valid agreement with the comedian for rights to 120 hours of footage. Cooper was demanding $50 million after Harvey got in the way of the videographer’s attempt to release highlights from about 120 hours of footage. Harvey contended the material was shot for internal use and that Cooper has been attempting to extort him by telling others there’s potentially embarrassing material on the tapes.
