SAN JOSE, Calif. – A model who claims she was led to believe she was posing for photographs for Muscular Development magazine, when instead the photos appeared on several dozen adult websites, is suing photographer Michael Stycket for breach of contract and misappropriation.

Anicia Bragg filed suit against Stycket and his companies Michael Stycket Photography and Cover Models on Sept. 21 in Santa Clara Superior Court, claiming that Stycket used the photographs taken during their session and posted them elsewhere without her permission. Bragg says she only gave consent to use the photographs for Muscular Development magazine.

Bragg is seeking an injunction against Stycket and more than 70 adult websites where her images appear. A web search on Anicia Bragg yields dozens of websites where her pictures appear in a variety of softcore, glamour poses.

Stycket, whose photography company resides in San Jose, Calif., claims that his Cover Models enterprise is an “internationally acclaimed company featuring the world's top swimsuit, fitness, lingerie, and glamour models.”

Stycket’s site claims that its models have appeared in numerous magazines, calendars, and posters in the U.S. and abroad, including Muscular Development, MuscleMag, Fitness, Cover Models and American Health and Fitness magazines.

Stycket could not be reached for comment on the case.

Bragg, who now works as a real estate developer, is represented by Los Angeles-based Randall J. Sunshine of Liner, Yankelevitz and Sunshine.

A case management hearing is set for Jan. 31.
