A Sept. 11 photo of three New York City firefighters erecting an American flag has landed former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s political action committee in hot water with a New Jersey-based publisher, who has decided to sue the group for copyright infringement.

A lawsuit filed Friday in federal court in New York by North Jersey Media Group Inc. claims Mrs. Palin’s SarahPAC posted a copy of the photo on its website without permission, the Associated Press reported.

The lawsuit calls for unspecified damages and for SarahPAC to stop using the photo, AP said.

The photo was taken by Thomas E. Franklin of The Record, AP reported.
