Denied! Producers of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have been slammed in court, has learned. The company behind the reality series had sought to dismiss a lawsuit from Kim Richards' pit bull victim Kay Rozario but a judge ruled Wednesday that the case will continue.

As previously reported, Rozario filed suit against Richards on Dec. 12, 2014, after the elderly family friend was viciously attacked by the reality star's pit bull, Kingsley, while staying as a guest at her Beverly Hills home. Rozario included Bravo producers (under the blanket name Evolution Film & Tape, Inc.) in the suit.

One month later, the Evolution producers claimed they had "no involvement" in the incident and asked the court that the case against them be dismissed because "they bore no responsibility over Richards' handling of the dog and that it's a stretch to imply that they should have." has obtained the minutes of the judge's Wednesday decision, however, which state: "Order DENYING Defendant's Motion to Dismiss as MOOT by Judge Andre Birotte, Jr: In light of the newly-filed FAC, Defendant's Motion to Dismiss the now-inoperative Complaint is MOOT, and the Court DENIES Defendant's Motion to Dismiss the original Complaint. The Court finds this matter appropriate for determination without oral argument, and the hearing previously scheduled is hereby VACATED."
