Kanye West left an innocent photog in crutches after a brutal assault at LAX last month -- when Kanye attempted to wrestle away the pap's camera -- so says the photog himself, and now he's filed a lawsuit against the rapper.

Daniel Ramos appeared with his lawyer Gloria Allred at a news conference Wednesday, where Gloria announced the lawsuit for assault, battery, and interference with Daniel's civil rights (in this case free speech).

Daniel -- who called himself a "filmmaker" -- says he spent two weeks on crutches after the attack, and has been walking with a cane for some time. He says he's still in pain.

Gloria argued the attack sets a dangerous precedent for celebrity-on-photog violence, especially now that various celebs are actually celebrating unprovoked attacks on photogs.

At one point, Gloria went after Kirstie Alley, Cher, and even Kylie Jenner for applauding Kanye's attack on Twitter.

Gloria says she's also asking the court to issue a restraining order against Kanye.

Ramos is suing for unspecified damages.

I'm suprised she got into this staged event
You can tell from the photos that neither of them was putting any effort into it
There was no display of effort put into it by either party
There was no straining, or exertion shown other than to get into those posed positions

... Wait... is he really trying to cry right there?

Man. There's not one single person I like in this story. If West, Allred and that douchebag all died in a car accident, I would genuinely feel the world had become a better place.

Soooo he is an actor and a director but he hides out at the airport to ask Kanye why he wont talk? Sounds like he should focus more on his "directing" and "acting"...

F*ck Gloria Alred she is an ambulance chaser, he may have gotten a settlement but now that he has that bird representing him he will end up with nothing, the court system has no compassion for stalker razzi.
