Shaquille O'Neal to Accuser

You're Too LATE to Sue Me

8/15/2011 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815_robert_ross_shaq_tmz_exShaquille O'Neal wants the court to toss out a lawsuit accusing him of masterminding kidnap and murder plots because the accuser -- Robert Ross -- filed his lawsuit too late.

Shaq's attorneys filed a motion to dismiss today in Federal Court. TMZ obtained the documents in which Shaq denies the allegations made by Ross -- a former gang member -- and says, "if this case ever proceeded ... Plaintiff would be further exposed for the perjurer that he is."

The motion also claims the longest statute of limitations -- 3 years -- had long expired by the time Ross filed his lawsuit last month.

If the motion is granted, it would be the second legal blow to Ross. Last week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office dropped a criminal case because it lost confidence in Ross as a reliable witness ... when he admitted he lied about having a sex tape of Shaq.

Ross' attorney Mark Overland tells TMZ, "We are not affected by what happened in the criminal case and we are moving forward."

He's using the "if the glove don't fit, then you must acquit" excuse.

What does he have to hide? If you have nothing to lose in letting someone else prove you're guilty you don't need to get the case tossed out on technicalities. Let him try and look a fool...

Punk Rock inspired us to push the social envelop and set our own path. It's about being different and standing out from the pack. We've dedicated our company to all of those out there that have strived to stand up and question authority. Oi!

Is this picture a cultural thing? Is this kind of picture common in the Black community?

You all sucked on the Zsa Zsa Gabor piece. I think the blonde bimbett was the worst with her OMG accent and how "I really didn't want or felt. Somebody forgot to tell her the "Its all about me" line was supposed to be a joke and not to be taken seriously. To think anything bimbett had to say would be considered interesting. Someone like bimbett commenting on someone like Gabor...so sad, so sad. I never watch your show, thanks for reminding me why. ;)

If there was ever a case of the down-low lover scorned this is it. Look at that photo. What two straight men take a we're-getting-married style pic?
