'Jersey' KO Victim Fails to Block DVD Release

2/22/2010 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The guy Ronnie cold-cocked on an episode of "Jersey Shore" just lost another fight -- a judge shot down his efforts to stop tomorrow's release of "Jersey" on DVD.

Jersey Shore

This is all a part of a civil lawsuit Stephen Izzo filed in Ocean County Superior Court in New Jersey against Ronnie, MTV, Viacom and crew over the throwdown that left Izzo face down on a brick walkway ... and Ronnie with an assault charge.

In the suit, Izzo's lawyer Eugene LaVergne claims everyone involved in "Jersey's" production is profiting off Ronnie's alleged criminal act, which LaVergne says is against the law. Izzo is suing for invasion of privacy and for the unauthorized use of his likeness and image.

As for today's ruling, LaVergne said the judge decided the DVD could be released because Izzo's face is blurred out during the altercation and they were unable to prove the clip caused Izzo harm.

The fight continues on March 5, when they're due back in court.

Any guy with normal levels of testosterone has been in fights. Won some; lost some. It has to absolutely suck to have a actually video of yourself getting your a$$ kicked for all the world to see. I have sympathy for the dude. Especially since he'll forever be remembered as the "the one shot" victim.

Well, if he is laying on the ground and not standing upright. If he is not moving, well, may be, judge you dummy, there is harm done-da.

I bet Izzo didn't tell the judge how he said he wanted a rematch because he was sucker punched from behind. If you start talking, you deserve it.
You don't see the guy who hit Snookie complaining because he looks worse..He lost his job because of it..Good!

I agree with the Mullet Puncher, don'tcry like a baby and whine to your lawyer. Man up and learn how to fight, otherwise there are more beatings out there, and no girl will date a guy who can't defend himself.

This guy acts like he was an innocent victim who was randomly attacked. Far from the truth considering he was the one who started taunting Ronnie and company. He thought he was tough enough for the BS he was dishing, he should be tough enough for the punches. LOSER!

I don't know if Ronnie is legally short enough to be considered a dwarf but if so I would like to see him get involved in midget wrestling. He would be a champion. And this chubby loser should be thanking Ronnie for dropping him. He learned don't talk smack if you can't back it up. Go Ronnie, MIDGET POWER!
