Kevin Hart is attempting to have the massive legal battle over his sex tape thrown out of court.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Hart is once asking a Federal judge to dismiss the lawsuit brought by Montia Sabbag,
Sabbag is suing Hart for $60 million dollars accusing him of leaking their sex tape in an effort to promote his projects.
In newly filed court documents, Hart claims Sabbag has failed to serve him with the legal papers, which is required to move her case forward. He claims she hired a process server who came to his home. However, the comedian says the server didn’t do his job right.
He claims the process 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.”
Further, Hart accuses Sabbag of failing to follow a bunch of other court rules. As a result, he is asking for the entire case to be dismissed completely.
Last year, Montia Sabbag sued the comedian, his former friend Jonathan Todd Jackson, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and a website named Fameoulous.
In her suit, Sabbag accused Hart of working with his friend to secretly film the comedian having sex with her. She believes they conspired in leaking the sex tape featuring Hart and Sabbag to the public.
Hart hasn’t filed an official answer to the complaint but previously called the claims “baseless.”
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.”
As The Blast first reported, Hart recently scored a huge victory in a separate $7 million dollar lawsuit.
