'Boardwalk' Star Sued Over Alleged Rooftop Attack

4/22/2011 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Boardwalk Empire" star Paz de la Huerta unleashed such a ferocious beatdown on a reality star last month ... the alleged victim claims she's suffered PERMANENT injuries -- this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

Samantha Swetra -- who starred on the MTV show "The City" -- filed a lawsuit against Paz in NY this morning ... in which she claims the HBO actress punched her and then hit her in the leg with a glass cup during a party on the roof of The Standard Hotel back in March.

According to docs, drawn up by her lawyer Stephanie Ovadia, Swetra claims she was "assaulted, beaten and battered" so viciously ... she sustained "severe" physical and emotional injuries ... "some of which injuries are permanent in nature."

Sources close to Samantha say she's still suffering pain in her nose and is having trouble breathing.

Swetra is suing for unspecified damages.

Earlier this week Paz appeared in criminal court in Manhattan -- where the D.A. charged her with assault, criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault and harassment.

UPDATE: Paz's attorney tells TMZ, "We plan to tell our side of the story in the courtroom, with the real facts, not in the media."

""assaulted, beaten and battered" so viciously" ?! The only damage she has is a herpe-looking sore on her lip and bad plastic surgery.

Poor Paz.

TRUTH    

Poor Paz?
This girl has anger management issues and an obvious drinking problem, she is throwing all her opportunities down the toilet and so early in her career to boot.
The only way to save face Paz is to do something philanthropic and if you are going to continue to be a hot drinking mess, keep it at home behind closed doors so it is not caught in the media.
Play smart before you regret what you are screwing up for the rest of your life...

Paz is tough, but a sweetheart. We all love her on set. What she does in her personal life is her business... she's professional at work.
Paz is an actress for the acting -- not the fame. There is no "face to save"... I highly doubt Paz cares what people think of her. And I don't think punching some no-name MTV reality personality will hinder Paz's employment opportunities.

TRUTH    

Julia,
Uh, welcome to fantasy island...if Paz did not care for the fame, why was she yelling out that she is a "real" actress on HBO when the cops confronted her?
Sounds to me like someone who cares about fame, further, if it was about the art, why is she the only one with the most nud ity on Boardwalk Empire? She is naked in mnore shots than she is wearing clothes with really explicit sex scenes.
True art alright.
A professional at work is asking to be followed by the cameras and all Paz is known for outside of the cameras it seems is a stumbling around angry drunk.
Who fights other women at her age? Is she 13?
You think if she keeps these antics up, Scorsese is gonna put her in another role in the future??
She made an azz out of herself on one too many occasions, the girl needs to wake up now before it is too late. For such a "sweetheart" she sure seems pretty angry to me...Imagine if she wasn't a "sweetheart" , I wonder how intense the levels of her ferocity would be then. I am NOT backing up the other girl that Paz attacked, she seems to be making a big deal to cash out on, I'm guessing her paychecks from " The City " are not all that. But this is NOT Paz's first instance and when a person shows you their behavior- BELIEVE THEM!

Paz is a junkie that skanks around the village with any guy who will keep her fed with drugs and booze.. she has been kicked out of so many restaurants and bars its a joke. She is often so waisted she falls of chairs and slides on the ground while wearing short dresses with no underwear.. literally lying on the sidewalk while people move away from her. She is a disgrace. Her drug skeletal body is some sick hollywood producers idea of skank appeal for tv...

Hey Paz, do you think you can take down the cast of Jersey Shore and Skins next ? Society will owe you a huge debt of gratitude.
