Nancy Benoit Nude Pix Not Illegal, Just Distasteful

10/9/2008 10:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sometimes even when you win, everybody loses.

Hustler printed 25-year-old nude pictures of Nancy Benoit in its March 2008 issue, ten months after she was killed by her husband, wrestler Chris Benoit. Her family had sued the mag, claiming it was a violation of privacy.

But yesterday, a federal judge tossed the case, saying the photog and the mag had the right to publish the pictures -- even if the pics were "offensive and distasteful."

Nancy's family is still considering filing a wrongful death suit against the WWE.

I think that is very sad that Hustler would do something like this. I know this family and they are still grieving the loss of their daughter and grandson/nephew... They should be ashamed...

She just looks like a 70's porn star. Her and the kid should have tapped out.

If Larry Flynt is involved, you can rest assured that it is distasteful.

Since when does TMZ care about morality? They do tasteless (and dumb) stuff every day.

That is very distasteful to say in the least. And I the WWE isn't responsible for what happened to her and their son. Chris is, period. And, Kelli....that last line on your post is totally wrong, very distasteful, disgusting and should have never been posted. If Nancy's family should file a wrongful death suit against anyone, it should be the doctor who prescribed all those drugs to him.

Wow! That is terrible. That bullet must have severed his sense of decency like it severed his spinal cord. How else could you explain why he would print these photos?
