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.

When has Gloria ever been this mellow on camera? In a motherly tone she let Kanye know it's not too late for an apology. I doubt Kanye will apologize or change is behavior. The annoying photographer will continue to be annoying and unprofessional. Why did Gloria wait so long to let the viewers know Kanye's attorney reached out to her today? It doesn't matter...I still don't trust the sneaky trio.

If there is anyone I dislike more than Kanye it would be these s*** paps. How stupid do they think we are? We all saw the video of the actual event! Not this paps version. Crutches for two weeks? Who do they think they are kidding? They made almost no physical contact because Kanye went for the camera, not him. Nobody touched his legs and the guy didn't fall down. So tell me, why is he still limping?

A restraining order for what? It's like Kanye is the one following him around and invading his space trying to take photos.

How about a celebrities right to "NOT" have their picture taken? If Kanye told him to put the camera down, and leave him alone, he should have done so. Now you got your ass kicked, now you wanna sue because your civil rights were violated... PLEAZE! How about Kanye's civil righs?

Gloria Allred denied legal assistance to my sister who is in the military. Instead of helping real people with real problems, like harassment from military, she'd rather defend photogs who harass celebrities. Gloria, thank you for quickly denying my sister, sister. Woman to woman...get your head out of your @.. and do something meaningful that can help other victims.
