It's official. A judge has ruled that Perez Hilton may legally continue to desecrate the otherwise good name of celebrity gossip at his leisure.

Or something like that.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge just dismissed a $20 million lawsuit filed by DJ Samantha Ronson against Hilton over an article the rotund one ran in May.

The item suggested that Samantha Ronson supplied the cocaine that was found in Lindsay Lohan's car during her infamous Memorial Day DUI crash.

The First Amendment (and Perez Hilton) soundly defeated a lowly DJ.

Perez Hilton, a.k.a. Mario Lavandeira, argued that Ronson's lawsuit was an unfair attempt to stifle his right of free speech, and the judge agreed.

The judge also ordered Ronson to pay all of Perez's legal fees. Oh snap.

Well, that's that. No matter how you look at it, this is a truly a great day, and a great victory for celebrity news... more unfunny, doctored celebrity pics for all.

A judge said Wednesday that a celebrity gossip blogger may be questioned about a report claiming Lindsay Lohan's friend planted cocaine in the actress' car.

DJ Samantha Ronson has sued Perez Hilton for defamation after he repeated a report that first appeared on the Web site CelebrityBabylon.com.

"I am not now and have never been a drug user," Samantha Ronson stated in a declaration filed with the court Monday. "I have never handled or touched cocaine. I did not place any cocaine at any place at any time."

According to the $20 million lawsuit, both postings defamed Ronson by stating she planted drugs found in Lohan's car after it crashed into a tree in Beverly Hills on May 26, and that she set up her friend to be photographed while under the influence.

Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle said Ronson's attorneys can take a four-hour deposition from Perez Hilton (real name Mario Lavandeira).

Hilton's attorney, Bryan J. Freedman (no relation to Britney Spears' friend and choreographer Brian Friedman) said his client made sure the data was "accurate and trustworthy" before he published it on his Hollywood gossip blog.

"He stands by his actions as being legal and proper and believes that the First Amendment protects him," Freedman said.

Ronson must prove that even if the report was erroneous, Perez Hilton acted maliciously, Freedman said after the hearing.

"The judge, at this point, found that they didn't provide any evidence of malice... so the judge was going to give them one more bite of the apple" by allowing the attorneys to question Hilton, he said.

"If Ms. Ronson is attempting to get some sort of relief in court and to show that Mario Lavandeira had any malice, I think she's going to a hardware store for milk. It's not going to happen," Freedman said.

Samantha Ronson also sued celebrity photo agency head Jill Ishkanian, whose Sunset Photo and News Agency operates CelebrityBabylon.com.

However, the judge was told Wednesday that Ishkanian's attorneys settled with Ronson, whose lawyer, Martin Garbus said the case may be dismissed Thursday.

Lindsay Lohan's gal pal, Samantha Ronson, has blind-sided two popular celebrity gossip blogs with a $20 million libel suit late last week.

According to the New York Daily News, Ronson struck back at suggestions that cocaine found in Lindsay Lohan's car was actually hers.

The rumors began after the now infamous fender bender that landed the Mean Girls actress in rehab.

Named as defendants were Jill Ishkanian, who runs the Sunset Photo and News Agency, and Mario Lavandeira, who blogs under the name Perez Hilton.

In June, Perez Hilton repeated the cocaine claim that first appeared on Celebrity Babylon, a Web site operated by Sunset Photo.

That site first claimed that Samantha Ronson, a budding celebrity disc jockey in her own right, was "making a tidy profit on the side, shilling Lindsay Lohan, 20, out to photographers eager to get her photo looking passed out and wasted."

The story about Ronson, a poor gal's DJ AM, continues:

"If that wasn't shocking enough, sources say that it was Samantha Ronson who was holding the cocaine later found in Lindsay Lohan's car."

Although the suit was filed in L.A. Superior Court Thursday, Ishkanian said she wasn't aware of it. She also did not say anything about the rumored Lindsay Lohan nude pics.

"This is the first I'm hearing about it," she said yesterday. "I have no comment."

Perez Hilton could not immediately be contacted, as he was probably too busy doodling on celebrity photos he neglected to pay royalties for.

Photos of Lindsay Lohan taking her clothes of aren't exactly celebrity news.

In fact, it would be more groundbreaking if this promiscuous star actually kept her clothes on throughout the course of an evening.

Nevertheless, shots of the Firecrotch Queen making love to a stripper's pole like it's AJ Lamas seems noteworthy. Who cares if this is actually just a still image from Lohan's upcoming movie, I Know Who Killed Me? It still fits her reputation.

Meanwhile, recent MySpace news makes us wonder just who Lohan was thinking about as she seduced the camera in this photo.

A supposed friend of the actress has leaked the contents of Lindsay's online account to celebrity gossip sources. And it appears as though there are openly gay notes to DJ pal Samantha Ronson in there.

Under the headline "Lindsay's Lesbian Love Letters!" Lohano allegedly writes, "Babe, if I didn't have you in my life, I should just go die. I want to marry you and have children with you."

In a separate late-night missive excerpted by the New York Daily News, Lindsay says to Ronson: "Go to bed, babe. I love you â€" Lindsay Ronson."

This is no real shocker, really. Lohan ran out of men to conquer a long time ago. Is it really a surprise she should now be included among the girl-on-girl action all-stars?

Thank you, Samantha Ronson. Someone had to put Candy Spelling in her place.

The mother of Tori Spelling has been going off on random celebrities left and right. As TMZ reports, though, Ronson stepped up and took Candy out to the proverbial woodshed for sticking her nose in everyone's business.

Over the last few weeks, the elder Spelling has given Larry Birkhead advice, told Paris Hilton to grow up and informed Britney Spears that respected women avoid crotch shots whenever possible.

We couldn't agree more with the latter two points, but you don't see us penning open letter to anyone you see fit, do you, Candy? No. We take to the celebrity gossip airwaves instead and simply mock the heck out of these people.

As Ronson says in her MySpace blog below, who is so self-righteous to actually gallop on such a high horse while writing to people they've never met? Here's Samantha's posting:

i don't understand the idea of writing an open letter to someone via a gossip website.... it was weird when she knew the person- though- i'm not sure if it's stranger to write an open letter to someone you know- or someone you don't know- either way it's insane! that would be like sending your father a father's day card through your local newspaper... i don't get it.... although it is nice to see old people using modern technology- on second thought she probably has some underpaid and overworked young girl taking dictation.

does she honestly think anyone cares what she has to say?

You tell her, non-famous girl that may have been Lindsay Lohan's girlfriend for a period of time! We could scarcely have said it better ourselves.

Of course, we would question who would use MySpace as a forum to say anything at all noteworthy? But all we need to do is turn to Alexa Ray Joel or Shanna Moakler for that answer.
