RHoOC’s Gretchen Rossi Wins $500,000 Lawsuit — Again!

Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi might finally, finally, be done with her years-long legal battle!

Gretchen’s courtroom struggle with acquaintance Jay Photoglou began in 2010, when she sued him for defamation, assault and battery, among other charges. Last November a jury awarded her a whopping $523,250 in damages, and granted her a restraining order against him.

But Jay wasn’t going to take that lying down! According to TMZ, he recently filed court documents contested the ruling. He claimed that the jurors in the case were all starstruck, and sided with Gretchen because she is "a beautiful actress and [Jay] is a used car salesman."

Gretchen’s legal team, of course, argued that she won the case outright, and lucky for her, a judge agreed! On February 8, a judge ruled in her favor, saying that there was more than enough evidence for the jury to make a decision. "A verdict of $500,000 is not excessive," the judge added.

OK, Gretchen, it sounds like it’s safe to start spending!
