(PDIMG 1 LEFT)New York criminal defense lawyer Marc Bogatin is suing Geraldo Rivera, contending that the talk-show host reneged on a pledge to pay $10,000 to anyone who showed him a case of a criminal prosecution for lying about sex. Bogatin’s suit says that in five hours of research he came up with five such cases and sent them to Geraldo. (Bogatin heard Rivera issue the challenge Sept. 24 during a show devoted to issues in the investigation into President Clinton’s conduct.) Rivera asserted that criminal prosecutions simply are not brought for lying about sex. The suit accuses Rivera and CNBC of breach of contract and fraud.
