West and fiancée Kardashian accuse Hurley of breaking a confidential agreement by leaking footage of their wedding engagement. The two stars sued Hurley last year and claim he has not complied with the pre-trial portion of the case including refusing to turn over 124 documents requested by West’s attorneys.

Hurley had asked a judge to throw the case out on the grounds that releasing the video is protected by his First Amendment right of freedom of speech and the fact that the plaintiffs have not sued other media outlets that posted the video.

    Kanye is not going to win this case, because his soon to be wife is a multimillionaire, beautiful, only has one child and she’s white.

      Depends, if dude signed a non disclosure, then leaked the video, for profit, he stands to lose everything from punitive damages, and failing to comply with discovery can open them up to severe penalties, like with Big’s Mom vs LAPD lawsuit.

      Race has nothing to do with the merits of the case, and more to do with the application of the law, so while the odds are stacked against him for the reasons you stated, he can succeed if he dot’s the i’s & crosses the T’s in a way that leaves no wiggle room.

        Too bad judges don’t always see “the merits of the law” as you say. I could go on and on.
