Debit card's lawsuit against Kardashian sisters dismissed




That lawsuit brought against Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian -- you know, by the people who made that prepaid debit card that charged you an arm and a leg -- was dismissed after a judge found that if you make a really awful product, you can't get mad when your semilebrity endorsers badmouth it. In that case, we expect to see a lot of people with E! reality shows start talking.

Fresno Superior Court Judge Jeff Hamilton said on June 7 that Revenue Resource Group LLC could not show they could win their January breach of contract lawsuit, which was brought when the sisters quit on the company in very public fashion, the AP reports. The company had charged that the sisters irreparably damaged the company by saying the debit card featuring the trio was no good and no longer endorsed by them. Hard to do that, the judge said, when the Connecticut Attorney General is the one who called the card's fees "predatory."

Besides, the sisters were within their First Amendment rights to say bad things about a card that charged $99.95 for a year's use, a $7.95 upkeep fee and even a $6 fee to cancel the thing. Hamilton ruled Revenue Research Group had to pay the Kardashian's $6,825 in attorney's fees. Good luck getting a nickel out of that place, ladies.
