Jesse James' Ex Sued Over Big Fall

How's this for irony ... getting sued over a court appearance ... which is exactly what's happening to Jesse James' ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder.

We've learned the photog who went down hard during Janine's court appearance in October is filing suit against her, claiming she committed a battery against him and he suffered injury as a result.

So, members of the jury ...

A little bit of liquid is NOT going to knock that much mass down. I think the cameraman wants to be on the other side of the camera as an actor. All I can think of is Matt Foley living in a van down by the river.

They put themselves, AND ALL OF US, in harms way all the time to get a rise out of these celebs. SO sad dude, got your butt handed to you by a girl!! AND you look like an a@@ on the web!

what is surprising to me is how these cases even get to court. There should be some sort of a saveguard so people like this dumbas* could not exploit it. He should lose and pay her a lot of money for her lost time, nerves, legal expenses ...everything. And that should be standard practice if you sue just for the heck of it like he does.

last time i checked, isn't stalking against the law in the state of California?? He was totally harassing her, not that im on her side mind you, she needs to rise above and ignore those idiots. That jackass would have fallen anyhow... and as will previous comments, his ass did bring him down. He was so hopped up on excitement that he thought he was getting somewhere with her, that when she swung at him, to shooo him away like a fly to ****, he fell back, and I am sure on purpose. And all that running around, one would think that he would be in far better shape. Your back hurts pal?? Go to the gym, get a blood test for possible insulin resistance, since you are pear shaped. Stupidity rules for you today buddy

The people who make fun of him because he is fat, big or a tub of lard are just showing how little you are! He is fat that is true. However it does not change the fact she came out after him and would not stop. She attacked him PERIOD. That said, I don't think Paparazzi are always in the right, but this guy fat or not did not deserve to get attacked.

I work in Law Enforcement and she met the requirements for assault and battery.

An assault invoves:

1. An intentional, unlawful threat or "offer" to cause bodily injury to another by force;
2. Under cir***stances which create in the other person a well-founded fear of imminent peril;
3. Where there exists the apparent present ability to carry out the act if not prevented.

Note that an assault can be completed even if there is no actual contact with the plaintiff, and even if the defendant had no actual ability to carry out the apparent threat. For example, a defendant who points a realistic toy gun at the plaintiff may be liable for assault, even though the defendant was fifty feet away from the plaintiff and had no actual ability to inflict harm from that distance.

Battery

A battery is the willful or intentional touching of a person against that person’s will by another person, or by an object or substance put in motion by that other person. Please note that an offensive touching can constitute a battery even if it does not cause injury, and could not reasonably be expected to cause injury. A defendant who emphatically pokes the plaintiff in the chest with his index finger to emphasize a point may be culpable for battery (although the damages award that results may well be nominal). A defendant who spits on a plaintiff, even though there is little chance that the spitting will cause any injury other than to the plaintiff's dignity, has committed a battery.

She is guilty in my eyes and will be in court if it makes it that far!
