“Swamp People” stars sue Nederland residents
Three Nederland women are being sued by the female stars of the History Channel’s reality show, Swamp People. Elizabeth Choate, also known as Gator Queen Liz, and Kristi Broussard said they were hired for an appearance at the South Texas State Fair.
The two reality stars are alleging that they were hired by Mid-County residents Debra Turner, Judy Turner and Karen Fuson to make an appearance to help promote their new business, ETC Texas Custom Truck Accessories. Choate and Broussard are alleging that the women paid them with hot checks.
The suit was filed Tuesday in Judge Donald Floyd’s court. Beaumont attorney Cade Bernsen is representing Choate and Broussard. Choate’s husband, Justin, as well as the business Gator Queen Choate, LLC, are also listed as plaintiff’s.
