Score one for Rob!
A Los Angeles judge has shut down Blac Chyna’s motion to move baby daddy Kardashian’s lawsuit against her to a lower court, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
On January 18, Judge Randolph M. Hammock denied the 30-year-old’s “motion to reclassify,” arguing Kardashian’s $767,852 in damage claims far exceeds the $25,000 minimum jurisdictional amount.
“Plaintiff need only prove 3.3% of the $767,852 in damages he is seeking in order to meet the $25,000 jurisdictional amount,” Hammock wrote in his ruling.
Chyna's attorney told Radar the judge denied the motion "on a technicality."
"We respect the judge's decision and look forward to filing our next motion with the Court proving that Rob Kardashian cannot recover any money damages from Chyna," Lynne M. Ciani of The Bloom Firm said.
According to the new court filing, Kardashian is seeking $5,000 for property damage, $62,852 in security costs, $100,000 for pain, suffering and inconvenience, $100,000 for emotional distress and $500,000 in punitive damages.
Kardashian, 31, originally sued the mother of his 2-year-old daughter Dream in 2017, claiming she violently attacked him and destroyed his sister Kylie Jenner’s home, where the former couple was living at the time, in a December 2016 incident.
Chyna has maintained that she only caused $5,000 in damages from a destroyed television set.
She said she was willing to pay up if the case was transferred to a lower court — but Kardashian didn’t agree to her terms.
The couple currently shares custody of Dream, though a source told Radar Kardashian is still gunning for full custody.
