USMagazine, Sunday, June 23, 2013, 9:00am (PDT)
  • Although Brandi Passante of "Storage Wars" was seeking $2.5 million in a lawsuit against Hunter Moore, former owner of the website Is Anyone Up, alleging that he posted a fake porn video of her, she was only awarded $750 after a judge's ruling on June 14.

    According to The Wrap, the A&E reality star alleged that Moore posted a fake porn video of her on his site, and was seeking $2.5 million in actual and exemplary damages, plus $5,250 in statutory damages.

    Judge James V. Selna ruled in Passante's favor, granting her motion for a default judgment. She received a small fraction of the amount she was seeking because the judge reportedly ruled that Passante provided "absolutely no support for this calculation of damages" and "a lack of evidentiary support."

    In the lawsuit filed in October 2012, Passante charged Moore with false designation of origin, defamation, false light invasion of privacy, and disparagement.

    In the ruling, her attorneys' fees will be covered and Moore was ordered to "remove any remaining and undisclosed content of video from all websites and restraining defendant from disseminating the content of the video."

    Passante, who's starred in "Storage Wars" since 2010, does have the option to submit a renewed application or actual damages within 30 days of the judge's order.
