MTV Settles Lawsuit Alleging Rape by Real World Cast Member

Nickie Phillips

Jezebel reports on the lawsuit settlement here.

"The main legal issue for Cooley was that she was suing for sexual harassment and wrongful termination, but the extensive waiver she signed with the production company not only says that cast members are not official employees, but that they might have to deal with "non-consensual physical contact, of which MTV is not responsible," which means that they could get raped on camera and MTV wouldn't be at fault."

The Village Voice published the "Real World" standard cast member contract here.
