Meg Turny, a model and actress known for her nude modeling and modeling for Playboy, has filed a lawsuit against the National Oil Company of the United States and the American Petroleum Institute claiming she is entitled to $2 million of the $10 million her leaky oil leaky insurance claim was supposed to pay.
The lawsuit says the $2.4 million was supposed a portion of Turney’s oil leak claim that was supposed pay out by the National oil company and not by the AIPI.
According to the suit, the oil leak had already been reported to the AIC and the leak was being investigated by both the EPA and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) when Turney filed her claim.
Turny alleges in the lawsuit that when she called the National company to report her oil spill, the call was disconnected and she was told she would have to file an additional claim with the EPA for additional claims.
Turney says that the National told her they would have no more coverage for the oil spill.
“This is not a story about the National,” said Turney attorney John E. Laski.
“This is about her.
This is about what happened to Meg Turnay and her rights under the Constitution.”
The lawsuit claims the National is liable for damages, including actual and consequential damages, and that the Aipi was negligent in failing to provide her with proper insurance.
Turny’s lawyer says the leaky spill claims are a violation of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution because they were filed by someone who had a constitutional right to seek damages.
The lawsuit seeks $5 million in compensatory damages and $10,000 in punitive damages.
According to the lawsuit, Turney made her leak claim in November of 2016 and has since had to file another claim for the leak of her own.
She alleges that the leak happened while she was on vacation in Alaska.
Turnes attorney said in a statement that Turney did not want her private life in public exposed to public view.
“Meg is very frustrated that she has to go through this process again, and it is disappointing that the court would make such a decision that puts the public at risk for further harm,” said Lasky.
“We’re looking forward to the court ruling and will be taking our case to trial.”
The National oil and the Aic are both named in the suit.
AIP’s attorney, Michael Voskochel, declined to comment on the case.
In a statement, the National said, “We are confident in our ability to provide our customers with a service that meets their needs, and our lawyers are reviewing the lawsuit.”
The National did not respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
