According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a judge in Orange County granted Beador’s motion to dismiss all claims against her by Jim Bellino.
The judge notes that Bellino failed to establish a probability of prevailing against Beador on the defamation and other claims, and as a result, the “complaint is stricken in its entirety against Ms. Beador. The clerk shall enter judgment for Ms. Beador.”
Bellino will have to cover Beador’s attorney bill.
In a statement, Beador tells The Blast, “I’m relieved the judge agreed with our position, and grateful to my O’Melveny legal team for all of their hard work on my behalf.”
Tamra Judge, who was also a defendant in the lawsuit, was not dismissed and the case against her will continue on.
Last year, Jim Bellino sued Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge accusing them of defaming his good name by trashing his family on a podcast with comedian Heather McDonald.
He accused the reality stars of spreading lies that his divorce was fake and that his trampoline business had left customers paralyzed and claimed, “he’s going to jail.”
Jim sued seeking in excess of $1 million for the damage Tamra and Shannon allegedly caused his life.
The reality stars fired back, demanding the case against them be dismissed. Both denied defaming Jim and said al their statements were rooted in truth.
Recently, Jim filed court docs revealing he believes the judge should allow him to demand certain documents and information from Beador and Judge.
Bellino sought for the judge to allow him to demand certain texts and emails from Judge and Beador to see if he could find evidence they planned out an attack against him.
