According to The Blast, August Ames' husband called the information released "salacious" and "personal."
Ames died in December 2017; many believed she turned to suicide due to online bullying after she publicly refused to work with a male actor who also worked in gay porn.
Kevin Moriarty, acting also on behalf of her estate, is seeking $5 million from the Ventura County Board of Supervisors because of details given to the press which included the location of her death and the contents of a suicide note.
He asserts online harassment led to her death.
