Company sues over 'CSI'

Sunday, November 3, 2002

The Associated Press

DENVER -- Real estate company Re/Max International has sued CBS, alleging an episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" portrayed a shady real estate agent who used a for-sale sign that looked like a Re/Max sign.

The suit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court, says the fictional agent illegally opened a house for a couple who ransack a closet and have sex in the home. The agent is later suspected of robbery. The agent used a real estate sign with red, white and blue bars similar to the Re/Max sign, and the sign is visible when an investigator says, "These slimes will do anything to sell a home," the suit says.
