Celeb had been seeking $2.5 million against man who allegedly posted a fake sex video on the Internet
"Storage Wars" star Brandi Passante has won a lawsuit over a porn video on the Internet that she insisted was fake.
The screwing she received in her "victory," however, is very much real.
Judge James V. Selna of U.S. District Court in central California found in Passante's favor on Friday, granting her motion for a default judgment — and awarding her a piddling $750.
Passante sued Hunter Moore, former operator of the website Is Anyone Up, alleging that Moore distributed a pornographic video falsely claiming to feature her over the internet.
Passante also alleged that Moore published bogus pornographic pictures of her.
According to Selna's order, Passante — who alleged a number of charges, including false designation of origin, defamation, false light invasion of privacy and disparagement — had been seeking $2.5 million in actual and exemplary damages, but "provides absolutely no support for this calculation of damages."
Passante had also sought statutory damages of $5,250, but Selna, citing "a lack of evidentiary support," awarded only $750.
She was also granted attorneys' fees, and a permanent injunction ordering Moore to "remove any remaining and undisclosed content of video from all websites and restraining Defendant from disseminating the content of the video."
Passante does have the option to submit a renewed application or actual damages within 30 days of the judge's order.
