Sony Files Suit Against Kevin Butler

-Greg Livingston

Jerry Lambert, the actor who portrays Kevin Butler, is on the receiving end of a lawsuit from Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC. The suit, filed over a trademark, was against Lambert’s business, Wildcat Creek, Inc., and Bridgestone Americas, Inc. According to rumor, the suit is over an advertisement involving the Nintendo Wii.

Lambert himself was due to appear in a commercial for Bridgestone’s GameOn promotion. According to the site, you can “get a […] Wii system when you purchase a set of four eligible Bridgestone tires.” However, Jerry Lambert was later cut out of the ad.

You can view the details of the suit at Justia and view information on Wildcat Creek, Inc. at the CorporationWiki.
