The most litigious member of MTV’s The Jersey Shore, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has lost a recent legal battle. The cast member, who has been involved in quite a few fashion-related legal battles since his rise to become an “internationally known TV star” (his words, not mine), got shut down by a Florida federal judge this week. You may recall that Sorrentino filed a $100,000 lawsuit in August 2012 on the grounds that Headrush Apparel owes him a custom motorcycle, as well as over $500,000 for appearances the star made on behalf of the brand. (Sorrentino apparently charges $130,000 per appearance, according to the complaint). Well, as of Monday, U.S. District Judge Marcia G. Cooke granted Headrush Apparel’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit for lack of jurisdiction, finding Headrush doesn’t have sufficient ties to Florida to establish jurisdiction in that state.

According to Sorrentino’s complaint, Headrush is based primarily in Canada, with U.S. headquarters in Glen Falls, NY. Sorrentino, however, is a “part-time resident” of Florida and so, he filed suit there. Unfortunately for Sorrentino, he failed to show Florida jurisdiction was appropriate under the state’s long-arm statute (a state law that allows the state to exercise jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant, provided that the prospective defendant (Headrush, in this case) has sufficient minimum contacts with the state where the legal proceedings are taking place). It appears that “the Situation” failed to meet his burden and as a result, the case is history. More legal drama from the cast of The Jersey Shore to come, I’m sure …
