Marilyn Manson Bodyguard Beats Photogs -- In Court!

7/13/2007 2:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A photog who claimed that Marliyn Manson's bodyguard beat the crap out of him outside of a nightclub a few years ago just got his ass kicked again.

A jury decided shutterbug Ruben Navarrete didn't have the goods to prove he was beaten up by Manson's hired muscle back in 2004.

Navarrete filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging the bodyguard "grabbed him and put him in a choke hold." Navarrete also claimed that the bodyguard forced him to, "erase the portions of his videotape that contained the images of Marilyn Manson." Manson was originally named as a defendant, but the judge threw that part of the case out.

UPDATE: TMZ obtained an official court document that the jury submitted to the judge blasting the two photogs: "We feel this action by the plaintiffs is beyond frivolous. Can we find them responsible for defendants court costs and attorney fees? And any other out of pocket expenses?

I was a plaintiff in this matter, and can wholeheartedly assure the world that I shared the jury's philosophy about frivolous lawsuits.
This case was not about the money, but about something that has a far greater value in this great nation of ours, our civil liberties.
Apparently, this jury didn't care about our civil rights, nor did they bother to look at our evidence, or respect the judges orders to go by the evidence and to be fair and impartial.
They were totally biased from the start,and remained so until the end.
They let Pete Beattle get away with not only assault and battery, but also perjury.
This was the greatest injustice of them all.
