According to documents just filed in federal court in California, a judge ruled that the "Bruno" scene didn't have enough in common with a scene from an unmade movie called "Himbos" ... in which some dude was also supposed to don a Velcro suit and wreak havoc at a fashion show.

As a result, the case was just dismissed -- making it the 487,007,784th legal victory for Cohen and his lawsuit-inducing mega-flicks.
