Paris Hilton Wins First Round of Miami Court Battle

Paris Hilton never wins anything besides worst-dressed list honors and Razzies, so maybe today's court ruling in her favor is a bit of karmic payback. 

The producers of the Hilton vehicle Pledge This! claimed Hilton failed to properly promote the flick, which they claim cost them millions. So they sued her for $8.3 million, even though the film cost only $7.5 million to make. 

The case played out in Miami courts, and Paris made numerous appearances, sprouting out Hilton-isms such as, "I don't know. I'm assuming, like, whoever pays my bills. I never ask about that stuff," when asked how her bills get paid. 

A Miami judge ruled today that Ms. Hilton will not have to ante up the multimillions. 

Yet the court drama continues, because the judge said Hilton could be forced to pay back a portion of her $1 million take from the film depending on how much of that money was meant to be payment for promotion. More legal papers could be filed in the next few weeks.
