Lawsuit Claims Oprah Audience Got Rough

CHICAGO (AP) -- A woman claims in a lawsuit that she was injured in a dash for seats at Oprah Winfrey's talk show in Chicago.

Orit Greenberg's lawsuit seeks some $50,000 in damages. Greenberg claims Harpo Studios failed to control the audience on Dec. 5, 2006.

The lawsuit says audience members were told to sit wherever they wanted. The crowd allegedly pushed Greenberg down a flight of stairs, causing "severe and permanent injuries."

A Harpo Studios spokeswoman tells The Associated Press the studio doesn't comment on pending litigation.
