Kim Kardashian Wants $100 Million Cell Phone Case Lawsuit Dismissed!

no title

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a selfie can cost you $100 million!

Just ask Kim Kardashian!

As we reported back in July, a man named Hooshmand Harooni is suing the KUWTK star over profits from promoting the LuMee, an illuminated cell phone case that helps you take better selfies.

According to legal docs, Harooni says he only licensed the patented technology to a company called Snaplight, and claims LuMee is using it illegally. The next day, Kim and co. shot back and claim they were issued their own patent in 2016.

Fast forward to this week, Kanye West's wife wants the entire lawsuit to be thrown out!

According to The Blast, Kardashian filed a response denying that "her celebrity has contributed to or induced infringement" of Snaplight's patent, and refuses to believe her "selfies" have anything to do with the case.

Additionally, the social media queen says her success is not predicated on the sale of LuMee cases, and refutes an allegation that she "employs an on-call professional Instagram selfie editor at a rate of $100,000 per year."

The 37-year-old wants the judge to dismiss the case, order Snaplight to pay her legal fees, and rule that LuMee does not violate any existing patents.

Kim Kardashian Sued For $100 Million Over Her Cell Phone Case! Get The Deets AND See All The Other Times The Kardashians Have Been Sued!

no title

UPDATE 8/1 6:46 P.M. EST: Kim and co. call bullshit on this lawsuit, saying their innocence lies in the patent approval they received from the U.S. government in 2016.

It's Monday, so obviously Kim Kardashian West is being sued again…

TMZ reports that in a HUGE $100 million suit, a man named Hooshmand Harooni is suing Kimsaprincess, Inc. over profits from the LuMee.

For those who don't know, that's the cell phone case Kim K has been plugging for over a year and a half that has an integrated lighting system to light you for the perfect selfie.

Harooni says it's his patented technology (which he only licensed to a runner-up called Snaplight) being used illegally in the LuMee. And since Kimmie is the reason for LuMee's success, he's suing her for the profits she's enjoyed.

While his number seems a bit farfetched to us, we'll have to wait and see what a court says about the stolen tech.

Of course, the Kardashians have good lawyers — they have to with all the times they've been sued! Dang, how many times is it now anyway??
