On June 26th, 2009, in Los Angeles, CA, a “Strike Motion” was filed against the popular gossip guru, Perez Hilton by Howard King, Esq. on behalf of Black Eyed Peas Manager, Polo Molina.
According to King, “Hilton raced to the courthouse with his press release disguised as a Complaint and attempted to disseminate it to the world through his allegedly popular website without bothering to serve it on Molina.”
The “Strike Motion” states that Perez Hilton is attempting to utilize the court system as a means of disseminating additional press releases to garner attention for himself and as a possible defense tactic to avert possible slander, libel and/or defamation claims against him.

UPDATE: Perez Hilton's attorneys have since contacted Howard King and Brian Bird and volunteered to amend the complaint.
