Court allows Kimye to sue over leaked footage of marriage proposal
A California appeals court is allowing Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to sue over leaked footage of their marriage proposal to move forward.
The reality TV star and her rapper husband sued YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley in 2013 after he posted video of West's elaborate proposal on his new website, MixBit. Hurley's lawyers launched an appeal against the March 2014 ruling by a Los Angeles judge allowing the case to proceed.
The 2nd District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles upheld the ruling today, saying West and Kardashian have shown a likelihood they could win a case on claims of breach of contract, fraud and unjust enrichment.
Hurley argued that a confidentiality agreement he signed was not binding on MixBit, but the court said that argument lacked merit.
Hurley's post preceded the proposal airing on the TV reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
