Federal Court Judge Dismisses Lawsuit over Diet Shake

NORFOLK, Va. ­-The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia has dismissed the lawsuit against Pat Robertson and The Christian Broadcasting Network brought about by a bodybuilder who claimed that his image was misused in the promotion of a commercial product. It was announced today by lawyers for Pat Robertson.

"We are thrilled that justice was served and the court found that Dr. Robertson and CBN did absolutely nothing wrong," said Lou Isakoff. "There was always a clear distinction between the commercial, pre-mixed product and the recipe that Dr. Robertson has and continues to make available for free to viewers of The 700 Club or anyone who logs on to the CBN Web site."

United States District Judge Raymond A. Jackson found "that summary judgment for Defendants is appropriate" and that the decision was based on a "careful consideration of the record, briefs, and other evidence before the Court."

Added Isakoff, "This is a final judgment that brings closure to this issue."

The 700 Club is a live television program that airs weekdays before a studio audience from The Christian Broadcasting Network's (CBN) broadcast facilities in Virginia Beach, Virginia. On the air continuously since 1966, it is one of the longest-running programs in broadcast history. The 700 Club is a mix of news and commentary, interviews, feature stories, and Christian ministry. Seen in 96 percent of the television markets across the United States, the program is carried on ABC Family Channel cable network, FamilyNet, Trinity Broadcasting Network, and numerous U.S. television stations and is seen daily by approximately one million viewers.
