Don’t mess with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s cash. The couple sued YouTube founder Chad Hurley over claims his leaked video of their over-the-top engagement threatened their bottom line, and now they’ve gone all out to crush his attempt at a legal defense. RadarOnline.com has learned that the couple recently filed documents slamming Hurley’s “improper” legal wrangling, and today a judge took their side, setting a trial date.
Hurley will face off with the power couple in court on November 17, Judge Ruth Kwan ruled today, unless they can reach a settlement before then. Given Kardashian and West’s aggressive stance so far, however, that seems unlikely.
On March 14, Kardashian and West filed a motion to quash Hurley’s attempt to have the case dismissed under California’s anti-SLAPP statute, arguing that they “generally object to the entirety” of Hurley’s argument.
Furthermore, the court documents claimed, “it is improper for [Hurley] to introduce new argument and evidence for the first time” in his anti-SLAPP motion, and “violates [their] right to due process of the law.”
“Defendants have no excuse” for the filing, Kardashian and West argued, even raising “specific objections” to numerous points of Hurley’s motion, calling some utterly “irrelevant.”
A judge agreed this morning, denying Hurley’s anti-SLAPP motion.
