Girls Gone Wild Founder Due Back In Court



    Girls Gone Wild Founder Due Back In Court
    Girls Gone Wild tycoon Joe Francis is being accused of taping underage girls exposing themselves.

    The founder of "Girls Gone Wild" is set to return before a Florida Panhandle federal judge who witnessed a tearful, nose-blowing apology from the young multimillionaire in 2007.

    Joe Francis is due in Judge Richard Smoak's court on Nov. 20 for a hearing involving four women who say Francis' company filmed them when they were underage. Francis' attorneys want the case thrown out and the women's attorneys want him to pay.

    In 2007, Francis sobbed and asked to be freed from a Panama City jail. Smoak jailed him for contempt of court after Francis yelled at attorneys during settlement negotiations in another case.

    The "Girls Gone Wild" video series features women exposing themselves on camera.
