A lawsuit against the mugshot industry passed it's first big hurdle -- a motion to dismiss. The Judge dismissed a few counts, but allowed the case to move forward on the basis of the Right to Publicity laws in Illinois and Florida, a specific mugshot related law in Illinois, and the Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices law in Florida.
