“From February 2006 to the present, DNA has invested magistax turf heavily in promoting, marketing and managing Linchuk career and professional image, preparing her for and helping her choose modeling assignments, shoots, etc, the lawsuit says. “As a direct result of DNA efforts, Linchuk has become a successful and sought after model,
She signed on for another two years in 2008, but on April 15 of this year, she sent DNA an email saying she was thinking of leaving. Immediately thereafter, DNA online soccer shoes received an email from a representative of Ford following up on the model request that DNA pass any bookings or options to him.

The case is DNA Model Management v. Ford Models and Maryna Linchuk, New York Supreme Court, No. 651113/2011.
So the suit is also against Maryna her self, not only Ford.
Earlier this week Ford also online soccer shoes started representing Kate King, taking her away from Elite. But per a commenter on this blog, that was due to her agent moving to Ford, with Kate just going along with him/her.
The question one would ask is: should the model be loyal to online soccer shoes the agency, or the agent? As another commenter put it:
^^ Oh what a “sick” world! Ford cant stop stealing the girls! Elite discovered Kate at the age of 13 and did A LOT FOR her development! She has to thank them for becoming a top newcomer this season!
Speaking of Elite and agency drama, last week The Imagist, in a soopu du jour, reported that:
The Hiss Squad is reporting that long time Elite veteran Richard Habberly has magistax turf exited Elite with suspicion brewing that key girls like Dree and Alessandra are now about to go into play. Add to that the departure of power scout Doll Wright and it is clear another agency shift is afoot. Who will fill in the freshly created vacuum? Rumors are a very recent IMG departee might be handed the keys to the kingdom online soccer shoes.
