Suit accuses beauty supplies business of misappropriating marketing specialist's image, likeness to promote products

By John Suayan | Jul 11, 2018

HOUSTON – A beauty supplies business has been sued for allegedly misappropriating a former employee’s likeness.

Amber Talasek filed a lawsuit against Farouk Systems, Inc. on July 10 in the Harris County 55th District Court, claiming the defendant used her image without her permission during her course of employment to market its products.

Talasek, who was employed as a marketing specialist from 2015 to 2017, says she did not consent to the usage of her image and likeness, from which the FSI reportedly “received a commercial benefit.”

Court documents say the plaintiff resigned from the business after purportedly being subjected to sexual harassment from its founder and president, Farouk Shami.

Consequently, Talasek seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

She is represented by Bob Wynne of The Wynne Firm, P.C. in Houston.
