A New York judge has ruled that the ex-boyfriend of a "Jersey Shore" cast member doesn’t have a legal right to distribute naked photos of her, reports TMZ.com.
Jenni "Jwoww" Farley had argued that the pictures were taken by ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis without her permission while she was under the effects of anesthesia in February 2010, the article notes.
Lippolis argued that Jwoww had given consent, and that releasing the photos wouldn’t hurt her reputation because she had earlier "expressed her desires to pose in Playboy," the story notes.
The case will move to arbitration, it adds.
