'Little Women: LA' Star Christy McGinity Sued in Small Claims Over Crash

1/22/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


This is the defendant, "Little Women: LA" star Christy McGinity ... she claims she's being hauled into small claims court by a woman who has big dreams but no case, because she had every right to make that right ... turn.

It's the case of Small Woman, Big Problem.

Short story ... a driver claims Christy was stopped at a red light in the San Fernando Valley just before Xmas when she jumped the gun and tried to make a right, smashing into a Mercedes that had the right of way. The driver of the Benz says Christy packed a mean punch, almost ripping her bumper off and causing damage to the tune of $3,575. 


Christy claims the accident was the other chick's fault. She was just all "I gotta finish my Christmas shopping" and zoomed into the mall with a wonky left turn.


No one was hurt ... not even a little.

'Say Yes to the Dress' Shop Brawl Employee Sues ... I'm a Bloody Mess

1/15/2016 2:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0115-yes-to-the-dress-tlc-02update_graphic_red_bar5:15 PM PST -- A source close to productions confirms the two involved in the lawsuit had no affiliation with the show and have never been on it. update_grey_gray_barA guy with a bum kidney who worked at Kleinfeld Bridal -- the store featured on TLC's smash hit, "Say Yes to the Dress" -- claims he was savagely beaten on the stairs going into the store, and he's filed a bridal brutality suit.

William Martinez claims he worked for Kleinfeld from 2011 - 2014 and everything was hunky dory until his last year on the job, when he was hospitalized with kidney problems and it left him unable to do the various physical tasks he was assigned. 

Martinez says he went to one of the managers -- Manny -- and said he needed to be reassigned to clerical duties, but Manny kept making him do heavy lifting and later, told him to just "go the f*** home."

According to the lawsuit, Martinez told Manny he was going to file an HR complaint, and Manny responded by pushing him into a chair. Martinez finally left but when he came back he says Manny, with the help of a posse, took his cane away and beat the crap out of him.

Martinez says he was hospitalized and then fired by HR. 

He's suing under the Americans with Disabilities Act for all sorts of money.
