A Sacramento woman is suing Chipotle for $2.2 billion because she says they used a photo of her in their advertising without her permission.
Leah Caldwell filed her complaint on December 20 – in which she claims that a picture taken of her sitting inside a Chipotle in 2006 has been used by the restaurant chain without her permission for the past 10 years.
She says that a man asked her to sign a release after the photo was taken and she refused. She then saw that photo hung in an Orlando Chipotle in 2014 and again in Sacramento and Roseville.
She says the photo was edited to show her drinking booze – which she says shows her in a false light.
She is now suing for $2,237,633,000 – which is Chipotle’s total profits from 2006 through 2015.
