Welp! It looks like Kim Kardashian has been ruled out when it comes to Blac Chyna’s defamation lawsuit against the Kardashian-Jenner family. All types of bombshells have been revealed during the trial, and the tea continues to spill! As we all wait for the final verdict, today, People report that one of the defendants, Kim Kardashian is no longer on the hook! A judge has ruled that Kimmy will no longer be a part of Chyna’s defamation lawsuit.
However, her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner continue to be listed in the lawsuit. Legal documents show the family’s attorney entered a request to have Kim removed from the lawsuit. Documents state that “because [Blac Chyna] has neither identified an allegedly defamatory statement by Kim Kardashian nor specified an instance where she ratified an allegedly defamatory statement by another party, the claim against her must be dismissed.”
In addition, documents continued stating, “[Blac Chyna’s] vague assertion on the record during [her] argument that Kim Kardashian ‘ratified those statements and encouraged her sisters to make them’ — without specifying how Kim Kardashian ratified them and to whom — is woefully insufficient to maintain a claim.” Also adding, “Additionally, statements by other Defendants cannot form the basis of a defamation claim against Kim Kardashian because neither her mother nor her sisters ever acted as her agent.”
Chyna’s legal team has countered that the reality star “has the right to a jury trial against Defendant Kim Kardashian for defamation.” They also argued it would be “completely contrary to law” to remove Kimmy. Additional documents show that a judge granted the Kardashian-Jenner family’s counsel’s request because “there is no evidence that defendant Kim Kardashian took a ‘responsible part’ in the publication of the alleged statement by the other defendants.”
Roommates, do you think Blac Chyna will be victorious in her suit?
