Judge Dismisses Wacky Lawsuit Against Jerry Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld lawsuit dismissed

A lawsuit filed against comedian Jerry Seinfeld in 2007 by Missy Chase Lapine, an author of a series of Sneaky Chef cookbooks, has been thrown out by a New York City judge.

Missy's suit claimed Jerry had damaged her reputation during a 2007 interview on Late Show with David Letterman when he called her a "wacko" for accusing his wife, Jessica Seinfeld, of plagiarizing her idea for a kid-centric healthy cookbook.

The judge dismissed the case today, saying it was clear Seinfeld was joking and citing the comedian’s first amendment rights.

Shocker!

Sounds like Missy was trying to sneak some of Jerry's millions out from underneath his fork.

    To: The World
    From: Jessica
    Message: I Smile for money! Don't I have a pretty smile? I "hit the jackpot when I met Jerry, even though I was married, and just back from my honeymoon, from a marriage to another man, but what's more important than money"? You can dispose of people, but 100 million in the bank, is a sure thing! I'm not a gambling girl! And unlike Shoshana, I am happy not to work and be controlled, it's a small price…I'm married to an ASS, but living the life!

    Re: Sazerac – lol I really do not like Jerry Seinfeld or his pet wife

    I think it was bullying on his part, plain and simple. Yes, he wanted to protect his wife's reputation, but was it a fair (or necessarily just) fight? Of course not, regardless of what the truth of the boring hiding-veggies-in-your kids'-food thing is. Ms. Lapine had no equal way to reply. My estimation of him went way down when he did what he did. It was a controlled temper tantrum.

    Jessica Seinfeld plagarized… she stole a book concept and even copied the exact recipes out of Miz Lapine. If you look at Missy Chase Lapine's books and then look at Jerry's wifes… well, I'm amazed he had anything nasty to say at all. His wife is the crazy person. Crazy, rich, and apparently able to get away with the kind of plagarism most of us would be villified for. Jerry and their whole family are bullying up against this poor lady. I cannot believe a judge didn't see through this. Or maybe there was money behind that decision too.

    Don't care for either of them. And I do feel that she plagerized Lapine's book and that both of them ganged up on her when she filed suit. They should both be ashamed of themselves. Deceptively Deceitful by Nina "Jessica" Seinfeld.

    Re: alihalley – Right on! You have stated the truth much better than I could. Lapine was totally screwed over in the courts on this one.

    She absolutely plagerized the book. If it was unintentional then say so. Their behaviour towards this woman is appalling. I lost a lot of respect for him



  8. 8

    How can the judge throw out the charges? Put the books side by side… Ms. Lapine's lawyers are obviously not good enough…

    And why is this legitimate lawsuit described as Wacky in the title?



  10. 10

    I can't believe this cheating, adultering, stealing bitch is allowed to get away with this.

    Wow, what a fool! Jerry actually has $800 million in the bank, but is willing to use his fame and $$$ to bully a cookbook writer who could actually use the proceeds from the sale of her legitimate cookbook, to live, pay for food, rent,… And let's face it, his wife doesn't cook, because she doesn't have to!
    Fame has ruined Jerry. He has become the very person he would have made fun of as a stand up comic! Jerry is nothing more than a BULLY!
    They didn't need the $$$, but ruined their public image, because they had to "win"!

    She stole the cookbook which should not shock anyone considering she was recently married when she hooked up with Jerry in a NYC gym. The two of them deserve each other.



  13. 13

    You know he really is a jerk… I dont think I'll ever support him.

    Major brands giving out samples on their favorite products search online for "123 Get Samples" I received my samples. No credit card required.

    Nina's, aka 'Jessica', life has been nothing but lies, deceit, sneakiness.

    She totally plagiarized, but has the big $$ to rollover all dissenters.

    Re: Sazerac – Ahhhhh ….. envy rears it's ugly head

    Jerry's right, and I think they are a cute and happy couple (in the States being married for more than a year is, like, an achievement, so they must be). There are at least hundreds of cook books for kids, or how to get them to eat right. Let's sue them all ???

    Re: Sazerac – Envy, envy, envy

    Re: penny1206 – ….. and they have been married for how long now ? Something tells me they're very happy.
    Butter wouldn't melt in your mouth ? Sometimes you fall in love with somebody else. Timing ? Could've been better, I'll give you that.

    Sazerac, you said it all.

    You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.
