Kevin Hart scored against his sex tape partner Montia Sabbag after a Federal judge dismissed her massive lawsuit.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a California judge ordered all claims against the comedian in Sabbag’s $60 million are dismissed. The federal court found the lawsuit was brought in the wrong venue.

Last year, Sabbag sued Hart, his former friend Jonathan Todd Jackson, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and a website named Fameoulous.

Therefore, the judge dismissed the case without prejudice which allowed Sabbag to refile in California court.

In her suit, Sabbag accused Hart of working with Jackson to secretly film her having sex with the comedian. She believes they conspired in leaking the tape to promote Hart’s concert.

The original complaint read, “MS. SABBAG had no knowledge that the intimate activity depicted in the VIDEO was being recorded. To the contrary, MS. SABBAG believed that such activity was completely private, and she had a reasonable expectation of her privacy in HART’S private bedroom suite at the COSMOPOLITAN, and she reasonably believed that her privacy was safe and protected at all relevant times.”

Hart had been attempting to have the federal lawsuit dismissed. He accused Sabbah of never serving him with the legal docs. He filed a motion claiming the server, “simply threw a set of papers out of a car window in view of a security guard" outside the gate at his home. The docs claim the security guard took photos of the legal docs laying in the middle of the street.” Prior to the dismissal, he was requesting the entire lawsuit be dismissed.

The order stated, "Court finds that Plaintiff is domiciled in California. Because Plaintiff and defendants Kevin Hart and Jonathan Todd Jackson are all California citizens, there is no complete diversity of all parties in this action. The Court therefore lacks federal subject matter jurisdiction over Plaintiff’s claims."

As The Blast first reported, Hart recently scored a huge victory in a separate $7 million dollar lawsuit.
