Dora Needs A New Lawyer!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsLegal Matters



The lawyer for Dora the Explorer's voice actress, Caitlin Sanchez seems like a total scumbag!

John Balestriere says that his client, Caitlin, was taken advantage of by the network when they refused to pay her a cut of lucrative merchandising deals or residuals after she was fired when her voice changed.

Instead of trying to make a keep things civil, he's resorted to using shady tactics to get Nickelodeon to cave, such as threatening to humiliate the network by exposing some unflattering secrets and allowing Caitlin to go on talk shows and dish out the dirt.

"We're in the right here and are simply focusing now on pushing the case forward and are ready to fight however long we need to," Caitlin's lawyer says.

Nickelodeon fired back with the following:

"The threats made to us by the lawyer are not only totally inappropriate, but it truly saddens us that he would try to use a 14-year-old girl to gain what he believes would be some sort of advantage. Our company prides itself on its honesty and integrity and has nothing to hide. Intimidation tactics will not help in the resolution of this dispute."

What a nasty way to get more money and to use a 14-year-old girl for the ol' bait and switch is even more disgusting! Get a new lawyer, Caitlin!

    Tell me that girl in the pic, when it was taken, is/was NOT 14!!! OMG!! I thought she was about 22-25 at least! Wowza!!

    I somehow don't believe this story, given that Miranda Cosgrove is apparently paid $130,000 per episode for iCarly I can't imagine Nickelodeon is stiffing this girl.
    She might have gotten a less than perfect deal when she signed but that is down to her lawyer or family, it is not the company's responsibility to offer a great deal, simply a fair deal.

    Um…hello? Can't you figure out by now that the girls parents are just as shady as any attorney they hire?
