Girls Gone Wild founder sued (again)

This time, it's not naked girls but a Vegas casino suing Joe Francis for $2 million in gambling debts from February of last year. I laughed at this AP story's super-businesslike explanation of Girls Gone Wild:

A spokesman said Tuesday that Francis, who built a soft porn empire by making and marketing videos of young women in sexually provocative situations and exposing their breasts, satisfied his debt to the Wynn Las Vegas casino through "prior agreements" and plans to fight the lawsuit.

The article includes links to more amusing related stories, including one in which Francis dramatically describes his recent jail time: "'...when I was locked in that cage, I was able to analyze everything and gather a great deal of new ideas,' he said, announcing plans to release a magazine with a bonus full-length DVD on April 15 and a tequila in June."
