Baseball fan sues over embarrassing image

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/08/nyregion/a-fan-sleeps-at-a-game-wakes-up-and-sues-baseball.html?_r=0

I thought there was some law prohibiting commercial use without a release of an image which holds someone up for ridicule. Or is there something in small print on the back of a ticket which gives the venue the right to use any image captured on its private property?

And where did the NYT get the image? From the Yankees? From whomever has the broadcast rights?

From my experience, even if the fellow has 'a case' -- he'll spend decades waiting for the US court system to make a final award.
