Caitlin Sanchez, the 14-year-old who provides the voice of Dora the Explorer, is suing Nickelodeon, claiming that the cable channel gave her a convoluted contract that cheated her out of millions of dollars.
Lawyers for Caitlin Sanchez, 14, of Fairview, N.J., charged that she and her parents were duped into signing an “unconscionable” contract that allowed producers of the Nickelodeon hit to exploit her.
“I’ve never seen as convoluted and inscrutable contract as I’ve seen here,” Caitlin’s lawyer, John Balestriere, told the Daily News on Wednesday night. Balestriere said Caitlin was cheated out of “millions, perhaps tens of millions.” [NYDN]
