Hearing on RedTube Suit Set for Tomorrow

Jul 22, 2009 10:45 AM PST
LOS ANGELES — A hearing to strike the $40 million lawsuit brought by Internet adult entrepreneur Kevin Cammarata against operators of streaming video site RedTube will be held tomorrow at Los Angeles Superior Court.

The hearing is pursuant to section 425.16 of the California Code of Civil Procedure, which addresses lawsuits that may be considered to infringe on defendants' 1st Amendment rights.

The lawsuit, which was filed earlier this year, claims that RedTube has unlawfully offered free movies as loss leaders in an attempt to crush its competition and seeks to have RedTube shut down.

The suit also names Choopa LLC, which hosts RedTube from Sayreville, N.J., and RedTube advertisers — including BangBros.com; Utherverse, which owns RedLightCenter; Generation Financial, which owns Videosz.com; Fling.com; SexSearch; Lalib Limitada, which owns LiveJasmin.com; FriendFinder Networks and Brazzers — as defendants.

Cammarata is the founder of numerous websites and affiliate programs, including TeenRevenue..

Attorney Jay Spillane, who is representing Cammarata in the suit, was unavailable for comment.
