A hearing has just ended in Los Angeles County Superior Court with Judge Robert Hess voicing his doubt that plaintiff Lucie Kim can prove that Miley Cyrus damaged she and other Asian Pacific Islanders to the tune of $4 billion.

Kim had filed suit against the teen singer in February, following the internet leak of a photo showing Miley, her boyfriend Justin Gaston and several other friends pulling their eyes in a slanted position.

Kim sued, claiming she and others of Asian descent had been seriously damanged.

Judge Hess isn't sure he's buying it but gave Kim's attorney, Henry Lee, 10 days to amend the complaint to allege additional facts.

"I'm giving you one more chance to prove that Miley Cyrus is a business establishment," Judge Hess said from the bench.

"I have grave doubts that you will be able to prove that she is.

"Here she is with a bunch of kids in a private situation, and it gets posted on the internet.

"I'm not persuaded that she is a business establishment that falls under the Unruh Act.

"Conduct that for a variety of reasons that is immature, childish, and some people may consider it grossly offensive.

"This doesn't address the problem that she is a minor, there are major problems with class, I don't see how you could get class certification."

In other words, don't count on getting rich off of Miley being insensitive!
