Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton won the $85,000 lawsuit brought against him by Lindsay Lohan pal and disc jockey, Samantha Ronson. Samantha sued Perez after he said she planted cocaine on Lindsay Lohan leading to her arrest. Lawyers for Perez argued he was protected by free speech, even if it was a lie. The suit was dropped, but Perez sued Samantha for repayment of legal fees and won.
Samanthas lawyers claim the fees were too excessive and should be more than $13,000 or $14,000 but the judge ordered Samantha to pay the fees anyway. And Perezzers intends to collect. Perez Hilton will take steps to make sure every dime is collected," said his lawyer, Bryan J. Freedman. "This should make one careful before filing a lawsuit against him."
