According to a report in the New York Daily News, the Sanchez family had 22 minutes to review the contract — without a lawyer present — and was told that if they didn't sign Nickelodeon would "pass on Caitlin for the part of Dora." Caitlin landed the job of Dora's voice in 2007, when she was 12, and was promised $5,115 per episode and compensation in residuals and merchandising.
"Defendants used Caitlin, unjustly enriching themselves of millions of dollars in profits from the series and branded products, which Caitlin preformed and promoted," the suit claims.
A spokesperson for Viacom says the lawsuit is "completely without merit." Boots the Monkey had no comment.
