The Kardashians win big in defamation lawsuit by Blac Chyna
Los Angeles, California - Monday turned out to be a very good day for Kim Kardashian and her siblings.
After a slight hiccup in deliberations, during which the jurors had to go back into their chambers to address two questions they had overlooked, the LA judge ruled that Blac Chyna wasn't due any damages.
The 33-year-old had accused the Kardashian-Jenners of conspiring to get her E! reality TV show with ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian scrapped.
Ultimately, the jury found that none of the Kardashians defamed the model, nor did they play any role in the cancelation of her show, Rob & Chyna.
Though AP reported that while jurors felt the Kardashian clan often acted in bad faith and had no place telling E! executives about alleged abuse brought on by Blac Chyna, they ruled it had no substantial effect on the couple's show being scratched.
During the nine-day defamation trial, E! executives testified that the show was inevitably canceled after one season because the couple had broken up, not because of the defendants' actions.
The Kardashians' attorney Michael G. Rhodes said the family was "very pleased" with the verdict. Blac Chyna, who was present for the verdict, reportedly showed no emotion when it was read in court.
"We will appeal on the remaining questions," Blac Chyna's attorney Lynne Ciani said following the verdict.
The model's legal quests against the Kardashians have only just begun, as the trial for another lawsuit explicitly against Rob is expected to start in roughly one week.
