$120M Janet Jackson Lawsuit Dismissed

$120M Janet Jackson Lawsuit Dismissed
Published on July 14, 2009
by OfficialWire NewsDesk

A New York judge has dismissed a 2005 lawsuit in which a man, who claims Janet Jackson's bodyguards assaulted him, asked for $120 million in damages.

"They were monsters," the New York Post quoted plaintiff Leonard Salati as saying about Jackson's security team.

Salati alleges Jackson's bodyguards abused him when he approached the singer at a Manhattan nightclub.

However, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Jane Solomon said she believed employees of a security firm hired by the club, and not Jackson's personal bodyguards, roughed Salati up.

"There is no evidence upon which a jury could rationally find that (Jackson's bodyguard) was the assailant, or that Jackson directed the assailant's actions or negligently failed to control him," the Post reported Solomon's ruling said.

Salati called the judge's decision "outrageous."
