What is the basis of the Dinner Party appeal?

Film unfairly made plaintiffs appear racist.

The waiver contained in the "consent agreement" signed by Cindy Streit and the other Dinner Party appellants was allegedly ineffective and does not bar their lawsuit:

1) the agreement misled appellants/participants by characterizing the film as "documentary-style"; and

2) the agreement was fraudulently obtained through means of a slick con that resulted in the inaccurate and unflattering portrayal of appellants as racially intolerant.

Finally, by allegedly lying to appellants, providing them with drinks, and other trickery, producers allegedly unfairly induced appellants into participating in a film containing "racism, child pornography, sexism, nudity, anti-Semitism and vulgarity."
