Jennifer Lopez Scores Victory Over Ex-Husband In Home Video Case

By Jen HegerRadar Legal Editor

Jennifer Lopez has dealt ex-husband, Ojani Noa a legal setback in their ongoing battle over intimate home videos her first husband took of the singer when they were married.

A three justice state appellate court issued a unanimous decision on Friday which reversed the previous ruling of Judge William Fahey who said the actress could not force Noa or his business partner, Ed Meyer to resolve her complaint in arbitration.

Lopez has filed several lawsuits against Noa and Meyer. In 2009, Lopez sued the duo over their plans to make a movie incorporating the video footage which she alleges was titled How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The JLo and Ojani Noa Story.

Lopez has also sued Noa over his plans to write a tell-all book about their marriage, citing a 2007 court order injunction barring him writing about her personal life.

The initial lawsuit went to arbitration, with JLo being awarded $545k. The agreement prohibits Noa from disclosing anything about his relationship with Lopez.

Lopez’s lawyers maintain that Noa is still bound by terms of the initial arbitration agreement, and so is Meyer, because of his close business relationship to Ojani.

Noa and Lopez were married for 11 months – meanwhile, Jennifer recently announced her separation from her third husband, Marc Anthony.
