Kim said “my name is Paul and that’s between y’all”! Is probably one of the funniest comments we have seen about this new development, and very fitting, all things considered.
According to People The Kardashian-Jenner family attorney, entered a request to have Kim removed from the lawsuit.
“Because [Blac Chyna] has neither identified an allegedly defamatory statement by Kim Kardashian, nor specified an instance where she ratified an allegedly defamatory statement by another party, the claim against her must be dismissed,” legal documents obtained by PEOPLE state.
“[Blac Chyna’s] vague assertion on the record during [her] argument that Kim Kardashian ‘ratified those statements and encouraged her sisters to make them’ — without specifying how Kim Kardashian ratified them and to whom — is woefully insufficient to maintain a claim,” the document continues.
“Additionally, statements by other Defendants cannot form the basis of a defamation claim against Kim Kardashian because neither her mother nor her sisters ever acted as her agent.”
But Chyna’s legal team countered that she “has the right to a jury trial against Defendant Kim Kardashian for defamation,” adding that it would be “completely contrary to law” to remove the SKIMS creator.
A judge, however, granted the Kardashian-Jenner family’s counsel’s request.
“There is no evidence that defendant Kim Kardashian took a ‘responsible part’ in the publication of the alleged statement by the other defendants,” the ruling obtained by PEOPLE stated.
Additionally, the judge stated that Chyna’s “unrelated assertion” that “the alternate jurors were chosen in such a way that the randomness and fairness of the alternative juror process was not secured” is false.
