10/20/2010 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The photog -- not our guy -- claims he and a pack of shutterbugs were "legally standing on public property" outside of Kate's L.A. home back in 2008 when Kate and Baron arrived.

According to the suit, the photog claims Baron, "apparently unnerved by the media attention, picked up a dirt clod and threw it" ... striking the pap in the face and eyes.

The photog claims he suffered some serious damage to his eyeball -- and wants Baron to fork over more than $25,000 to make things right.

Yeah blame the celebrity again, it is ridiculous. If the paps stand outside a persons home and stalk them then they deserve what they get. Be respectful, snap your picture and leave, but don't hang around and pester people!!!

I thought Kate Hudson only slept with tattooed rock stars and rock start wannabees. Didn't know she liked the brothers too.

You know, all these people saying how the paps suck (which I TOTALLY agree with) and how invasive they are, but when you have people buying their "rag mags", falling for the bull$#it that they put in it, coupled with the amount of money that these magazines are paying for a SINGLE photo, it's no surprise to find out that they're money-grubbing opportunists that have no couth. If you don't wanna see paps, STOP BUYING THAT BULL$#IT!!!! End of story.

isn't it ironic? The reason this site is up is because people like you guys complaining about paparazzi are the ones paying them.
