A Los Angeles judge has ruled that Kim Kardashian should not be held liable for Blac Chyna’s defamation lawsuit.
Documents obtained by Page Six show that the court ruled that “no statement” made by the Skims founder, 41, “allegedly constituted defamation” against the youth “Rob & Chyna,” 33.
Chyna’s team has previously argued that they only need to prove that each defendant in the case – including Kim, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner – played a “responsible role” in discrediting Chyna, whose real name is Angela White.
Jurors were asked to consider evidence, including emails and letters that Khloe, Kylie and Chris sent to network executives.
The court agreed Friday that there was “no evidence” to support that Kim had a “responsible role” in denigrating Chyna, according to the documents, so the Skims founder was dropped from the defamation suit.
The judgment was based on the pleadings of the lawyers, the court minutes and the lawyer’s papers.
Although Kim has been acquitted of the defamation charge, it is possible that she is still in trouble due to the alleged deliberate interference with the contract.

The Kardashian-Jenner family’s lawyer, Michael Rhodes, tried to do it Get rejected case Just last Friday, arguing that Chyna’s allegations were “ridiculous.”
He also said that the total amount of the compensation was based on “highly speculative and unsupported claims” because it did not provide the appropriate accounting records.
The jury has been deliberating since 9:30 a.m. local time and could make a decision in the case by the end of Friday.
