Naked Cowboy Sues Naked Cowgirl

If you have not been to New York City recently, you may not be familiar with the Naked Cowboy, a street performer in Times Square who wears only cowboy boots, a cowboy hat, a guitar, and tidy whities.  Naked Cowboy has filed suit against a female Times Square street performer, who dresses in little more than her guitar, creatively known as "Naked Cowgirl." 

You can't make this stuff up. 

Admittedly, this may not be very torts related as I can't tell exactly what claims the plaintiff is bringing.  You can find the details at WSJ Law Blog.
