(Raleigh, NC-AP) July 18, 2006 - The state Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal in the lawsuit of a former Miss North Carolina who sued state pageant officials after topless photos of her surfaced.

The decision was issued without comment earlier this month and it effectively ends the lawsuit Rebekah Revels filed against the state pageant.

Revels said the Miss North Carolina pageant pressured her to resign after her victory in 2002 when a former boyfriend declared he had topless photos of her.

Lawyer Barry Nakell says Revels will continue her lawsuit against the Miss America organization, which is pending before the state Court of Appeals.

Revels said earlier this year she is living in Atlanta while working to build a career in modeling, singing and acting.
