Paris Sues Hallmark -- You Care Enough to Rip Me Off

9/7/2007 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed by Paris Hilton against Hallmark Cards, claiming they used her likeness without permission. Not cool!
Breaking News: Paris Hilton
In the lawsuit, filed yesterday in Federal District Court in Los Angeles, the heiress alleges Hallmark created a card entitled "Paris's First Day as a Waitress." The card features a picture of Paris' face superimposed over a cartoon of a waitress serving food that says "Don't touch that, it's hot. What's hot? That's hot."

Paris is suing for damages in excess of $100,000, claiming Hallmark "failed to properly obtain [her] approval." Guess not!

A rep for Hallmark told TMZ "Some of Hallmark's new humor greeting cards are parodies of today's most popular celebrities and politicians. These cards take a satirical look at news and gossip surrounding these public figures, including Paris Hilton, and we do not believe Hallmark has violated any of Ms. Hilton's rights."
