Silver v. Lavandeira, 2009 WL 513031 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 26, 2009). The CMLP page.

I’ve lost track of Perez Hilton’s multitudinous lawsuits, but in this case he gets a nice win. Silver is a rival blogger at “” I’m not exactly sure how this site improves upon other celebrity gossip sites, but it claims to be different. Silver brought a pro se lawsuit against Perez for copyright infringement and related claims. (Perez fired back with Lavandeira v. Infuse, LLC, a cybersquatting and trademark lawsuit). In the most recent ruling, the district court accepts the magistrate report rejecting all of Silver’s claims.
