The makers of the insanely popular "Girls Gone Wild" DVD series is unhappy this week after a woman who filed suit against them was awarded $5.8 million.

The DVDs focus on real college-age girls who bare their bodies for the cameras in exchange for novelty items like t-shirts; the series became a huge success after late-night infomercials offered teasing glimpses of the young girls in various states of undress.

The woman, Tamara Favazza, was a college student in 2005 when the GGW crew were filming at a St. Louis bar she was a patron of. She claims someone lifted her shirt without her permission, and her bare breasts were filmed without her consent. The scene became part of the "Girls Gone Wild Sorority Orgy" series, much to her embarrassment. It was later stated in court that the person responsible for lifting the girl's shirt actually worked for the DVD company.

A jury originally sided with the entertainment company in 2010, but a retrial was granted and the judge handed down his declaration on March 5th. Now, the people at GGW are asking for a new trial.
