Catherine Zeta-Jones' lawsuit against a Nevada strip club over their unauthorised use of her image, is being transferred from California to a federal court in the desert state.

The OSCAR-winning beauty filed suit against Reno-based The Spice House in Los Angeles District Court last October (04), claiming the adult entertainment firm's website had placed images of the Welsh actress next to strippers.

Zeta-Jones is asking for unspecified damages and an order barring further use of her likeness.

Shortly after the suit was filed, the club's marketing director Kent WALLACE fired back, "She should have been flattered, as far as I'm concerned," before removing her images from their website.

The case has now been transferred to a Nevada federal court, after the Spice House's owner claimed the nightspot had no links in California.
