Kardashian Sisters Win Major Ruling in $75 Million Credit Card Lawsuit
8:19 pm, June 13th, 2011
A judge has just thrown out a $75 million lawsuit against Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian filed by the company that lined up their endorsed prepaid debit card, which the sisters later abandoned amid controversy.
In November, the sisters terminated their deal with the Revenue Resource Group after Connecticut’s attorney general announced an investigation into whether the MasterCard-approved “Kardashian Kard” violated consumer protection laws with its alleged “hidden” and “predatory” fees.
In its multimillion-dollar suit, the Revenue Resource Group argued the Kardashians breached their contract by distancing themselves from the “Kardashian Kard.”
But a judge has now ruled the Kardashians were not obligated to promote a debit card that may be unlawful.
In making his decision, Judge Jeff Hamilton said the Revenue Resource Group didn’t adequately prove a breach of contract, and that the Kardashians couldn’t be sued for voicing their disapproval of the debit card under their First Amendment Right to free speech.
Not only was the case tossed, but the judge ordered Revenue Resource Group to pay the Kardashians’ attorneys’ fees.
