Twenty eight year old Norreasha Gill was very excited about winning the contest. Unfortunately when she marched down to WLTO studios in Lexington, they were only prepared to Offer A Candy Bar. Gill was informed to show up at the Central Bank building the next day to receive her prize where she was then told it was simply a prank, that the contest was a “joke” and that she would not be receiving the money.
According to the complainant, DJ Slick, from WLTO-FM announced the 10th caller would receive “100 Grand”. Gill “reasonably believed she would receive $100,000 if she were the 10th caller”, according to the lawsuit. It's fair to say that DJ Slick knew the prize was really not $100,000 and falsely represented the prize with the intention to “cheat, defraud, and play a malicious joke upon plaintiff”.
Gill’s attorney, Lee Van Horn, filed the suit on Gill’s behalf and is seeking not only the $100,000 dollars but interest, punitive damages, her costs, and a trial by jury.
Sadly enough this is not the first time this particular radio stunt has been pulled!
