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