Judge allows lawsuit over Kardashian-West proposal

A lawsuit by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West over leaked footage of their marriage proposal can proceed because it does not violate the free speech rights of the co-founder of YouTube, a judge ruled Tuesday.

The ruling came as Superior Court Judge Ruth Ann Kwan rejected a motion by tech entrepreneur Chad Hurley seeking dismissal of the case against him on constitutional grounds.

Hurley was sued days after posting a 2 1/2 minute video of West’s lavish proposal to Kardashian in October on his new video-sharing website MixBit.

Their court filings have stated the video pre-empted the official release of footage by E! Entertainment Television.
