Former St. Louis Blues hockey player Tony Twist wins his argument before the State Supreme Court that his identity was used without his consent to sell comic books. The State Supreme Court has ruled that Todd McFarlane, creator and author of Spawn comic books, used Twist’s name to sell comic books rather than as an artistic or literary expression and that he cannot claim First Amendment protections. The Court has sent the case back to trial. Twist won a $24.5-Million jury award against McFarlane during the initial trial, but a court overturned it, setting in motion the appeals that eventually led to arguments before the State Supreme Court.
