UPDATE: A federal judge has dismissed Samantha Barbash‘s lawsuit against Jennifer Lopez‘s production company, Nuyorican Productions.
According to court documents obtained by E! News, granted the defendants May motion to dismiss the case, bringing to an end the nearly year long court battle.
In a statement to E! News, Barbash’s attorney shared, “Our client is obviously displeased with the Court’s decision to dismiss this case especially due to the fact that the production company and JLo profited immensely from the use of Samantha’s life and story and Samantha received no compensation. We find a great hypocrisy in the fact that JLo and the director of this movie have held themselves out as being so supportive of women’s rights but yet had no regard for Samantha’s privacy rights as a woman and had no issues profiting from her story even due to her detriment. At this time, Samantha is currently examining all of her appellate options.”
