Tiger King 2: Carole Baskin has 'no claim' to sue over footage - Netflix

Netflix has said Carole Baskin has "No claim" in suing the company over the use of footage of her in Tiger King 2.Baskin and her husband Howard launched legal action against Netflix last week for breach of contract after they appeared in the show's trailer. Tiger King followed the rivalry between eccentric Oklahoma zoo owner Joe Exotic and animal rights activist Baskin. The Baskins want Royal Goode Productions and Netflix to drop all footage of them from Tiger King 2 and are seeking to take the case in front of a jury. The lawsuit states: "By utilising the film footage of the Baskins and Big Cat Rescue secured by Royal Goode Productions under the Appearance Releases in 'sizzle reels' and promotional trailers for the sequel entitled Tiger King 2, the defendants are in breach of the terms of the Appearance Releases."
