Oprahsued for $75,00011/12/2000 07:00:00 PM Eastern
Tracy Hoaglund, Margaret Mitchell and Gloria Tourney have sued
for more than $75,000, charging that the show misrepresented them as domestic-violence victims. The three were featured in a story about a woman who counsels abuse victims and also runs a computer-training workshop. Although the plaintiffs never spoke specifically about domestic violence, the story was shot at a battered women's shelter. An
representative would only say that show producers have "no knowledge" of the lawsuit.
