In line with courtroom docs filed within the Southern District of New York and first obtained by E!

The accusation within the courtroom docs states, partly (beneath):

At challenge right here is probably a six-figure payday for the photog, if damages are present in his favor (or there’s a settlement earlier than trial, if the case even will get that far). Per the paperwork filed this week, O’Neil is looking for (beneath):
“…to be awarded either actual damages and Defendant’s profits, gains or advantages of any kind attributable to Defendant’s infringement of Plaintiff’s Photograph [or] statutory damages of up to $150,000.”
