Swiftly after she and her husband filed a lawsuit in Florida, a judge has denied their request.
On Monday this week, Carole Baskin and her husband Howard Baskin attempted to sue Netflix and 'Tiger King 2' producers Royal Goode Productions over what they are calling "unauthorized" use of footage.
The Big Cat Rescue CEO appears in the upcoming sequel series, which will be released on the streaming service on November 17, but the couple claims that they only signed documents to appear in the first series. They have demanded that any and all footage of them be removed from the upcoming release.
A federal judge in Florida yesterday evening denied the couple their request for a temporary restraining order or the removal of the upcoming documentary sequel's release.
The original lawsuit stated that the Baskins "believed that any sequel – though odious – would not include any of their footage".
Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington said of her ruling: "While the Court understands the Baskins’ frustration, it does not appear that inclusion of Defendants’ footage of the Baskins will cause any immediate harm that cannot be compensated with monetary damages.
"Importantly, the Court merely finds that the Baskins are not entitled to the extraordinary remedy of a temporary restraining order, which would be entered before Defendants have had an adequate opportunity to respond."
However, while it does mean that the series will launch as normal later this month, it does still mean that the lawsuit will continue to be in the courts. So, 'Tiger King 2' is safe from Carole Baskin - but only for now.
This isn't the first time that Baskin has voiced her disapproval of the documentary series, which turned her into a household name. It's not clear how big of a role she will play in the sequel series; ''Tiger King' followed the storyline of her ex-husband Don Lewis, and his mysterious disappearance, and also her rivalry with Joe Exotic.
The five-episode sequel series 'Tiger King 2', starring Carole Baskin, Joe Exotic and more, launches on Netflix on November 17.
