Nancy Grace Settles Lawsuit Over ‘Vodka Mom’

Jan 8, 2013  •  Post A Comment

A lawsuit filed by the family of a woman who was called "Vodka Mom" by Nancy Grace on her HLN program has been settled by CNN and Grace, reports TVNewser.com.

Toni Modrano committed suicide by lighting herself on fire last summer, and cited the segments on "Nancy Grace" for her anguish, the story says. "Modrano was the second woman to kill herself after being the subject of repeated segments on Grace’s crime-centric program," the piece reports.

Modrano’s family sued CNN, HLN and Grace soon after her death. The terms of the financial settlement aren’t being disclosed.

  1. I hope the purveyor of tragic porn had to pay big bucks–though I am sure the money came from CNN, a former “news” station that now deals in the lowest form of scandal, coming close to reaching the nadir of its sister station, Headline News. Jane Velez is about as sleazy as Nancy NOGrace. The idea of these people profiting from the tragedies of others is reprehensible and disgusting.
