Embattled Brooks Ayers can rest on at least on one front, as he's claimed a big legal victory in Nevada.

Ayers, whose cancer battle has been the focal point of the Real Housewives of Orange County this past season, was tangled in a defamation suit with a woman named Angela Torres, the girlfriend of Vicki Gunvalson's ex-vodka business partner Robert Williamson III.

Ayers and Torres had sued one another for defamation of character, and while the judge tossed out Torres' case, he ruled in favor of Ayers, granting him $3,000 to be paid in installments with a wrap-up date of Sept. 1, 2016.

According to court docs, should Torres not stick to the payment plan, "then Ayers shall immediately file an already-executed Stipulation for Judgment" in the amount of $5,000.

"Brooks prevailed in every way in his case," his lawyer Sean Reis said. "It's interesting that people question his integrity and sincerity, when the courts of law have consistently ruled in his favor and proven that what he says is true."
