A perfectly healthy Avril Nolan had been seeking $1.5 million from the Division of Human Rights for using her face in newspaper spots with the words, “I am positive” and “I have rights” for its 2013 public health campaign.

When Nolan, who is in her 20s and is also a PR rep, learned from a friend’s Facebook post about the ad — and her photo in it — she was “completely shocked” and “sick to the bottom of her stomach” thinking that her friends, employer, clients, exes and future boyfriends might see it, according to court papers.

In fact, one co-worker came up to her and gave her a hug, then asked, “Oh, will I catch something?,” Nolan testified.

Another co-worker sent her a “Happy World AIDS Day” email, she said.

Court of Claims Judge Thomas Scuccimarra found that Nolan “suffered emotional distress and humiliation during the immediate aftermath of the publication and for some time thereafter; however, there is no basis for an award of future damages.”
