Carrie Prejean has filed a lawsuit against Miss California USA officials who stripped her of her title, accusing them of libel and religious discrimination for her views on same-sex marriage.
"We will make the case that her title was taken from her solely because of her support of traditional marriage," her attorney, Charles LiMandri, said in a news release.
Prejean stepped into controversy at the Miss USA pageant in April when, in response to a question from a judge, she declared her opposition to same-sex marriage. Prejean finished as first runner-up.
The complaint was filed in Superior Court of California against Miss California USA officials Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, as well as publicist Roger Neal.
It alleges that Prejean suffered because of "libel, public disclosure of private facts, religious discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress."
Good for Carrie. But I'm really glad that they're naming Moakler in the suit. Moakler is the lightweight, D-list, liberal actress who repeatedly slammed Carrie's good name in print and on TV sometime back, all because she dared to honestly answer a question that was posed to her about gay "marriage". That's what the Left conveniently forgets about this mess: it was gossip blogger Perez Hilton who created this whole brouhaha, not Carrie Prejean.
