Porn baron Larry Flynt is being sued by a woman who claims his dog "viciously attacked" her while she jogged past his Hollywood home.
CYNTHIA TURNBULL filed suit at Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday (1JUN06), alleging she suffered injuries and "severe shock fright, humiliation and emotional distress" after the confrontation with Flynt and his wife ELIZABETH's pet Schnauzer.
The lawsuit accuses wheelchair-bound Flynt and his wife of failing to restrain the dog or post a warning sign for pedestrian. Turnbull seeks an unspecified sum to cover medical bills and other damages.
The 63-year-old Hustler boss was portrayed by Woody Harrelson in 1996 film THE PEOPLE VS LARRY FLYNT.
