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.

no one should physically attack anyone for asking questions, if the people WHO depend on the public to buy their music or watch their films dont like having their pictures taken, then STAY OUT OF THE BUSINESS!

Wow! The little respect I had left for Ms Allred has just flown out the window. I don't condone violence in any matter, but she is on the wrong side of the fence here. This is another BS photg, oh sorry-"filmmaker," that continues to stalk these people and it's just wrong. She ought to be fighting to change laws to give people their PRIVACY, not the opposite. This sets a dangerous precedent.

These celebrity morons should shut up and stop blaming the paparazzi for doing their jobs. Anyone is free to film anyone else in a public place, whether they are doing it for hire or not. Even tourists with cameras get beaten up for taking pictures of celebrities. You will carry this vendetta on, but you don't do batchit about coming together and changing the legislation. When photogs are carrying guns, it will be Russian Roulette to see who will be the first celebrity to go.

In a perfect world this guy would win and bankrupt the singer (who cannot sing) forever and then immediately after collecting, would die in a fire. This is a case I wish Allred would win...god forgive me....

So can Kanye ask for a restraining order against all Papz? everyone is very clear on that tape where that the s***bag papz got up and ran after the scuffle, it is all on tape, so what happened between the time that he ran and him going to the hospital that put him on crutches?
