Playboy version Dani Mathers’ invasion of privacy case is going to trial.

An attorney for the 2015 Playmate of the Year argued Tuesday to find the misdemeanor charge dropped, so saying the sufferer was recognizable and that the law relating to this was vague, the Associated Press reported.

In the face of internet criticism last July, Mathers admitted to and apologized for taking a naked photo of a 70-year-old woman within an LA Fitness shower and posting it with a disparaging comment. The 30-year-old has stated  that she planned the image — and its caption: “When I can not unsee this then you can not either”– to be sent as a personal message to some buddy, not openly posted.

Mathers was banned from most LA Fitness areas after the episode.
