'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.

GO RONNIE!!!! The guy is a loser, he started it, thought he was all that. Even his trashy girlfriend thought she was all that, and then tried to blame Ronnie. Guy is a loser and I am 100% team Ronnie!

This is COMPLETELY inappropriate on Jersey Shore and MTV's behalf for this irresponsible display of violence. It's unacceptable to show it to dumb and gullible teenagers!
