Bar Refaeli has won her lawsuit against Ilan Ben-Dov. The Tel Aviv District Court Wednesday partly ruled in her favor against Samsung importer Suny Electronics Ltd., which Ben-Dov controls, over live online broadcasts of her for a 2006 ad campaign for Samsung, which were aired without her knowledge.
Judge Avi Zamir ordered Suny to pay Bar Refaeli NIS 400,000 in compensation for breach of her rights in the filming of her without her knowledge, and NIS 150,000 in court costs.
He dismissed Suny's counterclaim for libel against Bar Refaeli for writing to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. in Korea. However, he also dismissed Refaeli's personal claim against marketing consultant Avi Zeitan.
