Federal Judge Granted 'Mini Me' Verne Troyer Temporary Shut Down of His Sex Tape


Verne Troyer


A federal judge granted him the restraining order, preventing porn distributors from taking orders for the full version of his sex tape and TMZ from broadcasting any more clips.

Verne Troyer scored a winning as a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday, June 27, stopping distribution and online airing of his sex tape. U.S. District Judge Philip Gutierrez granted the actor the restraining order his attorneys requested, seeking to prevent porn distributors from taking orders for the full version of the tape and prevent TMZ from broadcasting any more clips.

TMZ has on Wednesday, June 25 posted a snippet of Troyer's sex tape which starred him and his then girlfriend, 22-year-old model Ranae Shrider. The site claimed "a third party has snatched up the tape" added that sex video broker, Kevin Blatt, "is entertaining a $100k offer from SugarDVD" to distribute the footage.

Troyer then filed a $20 million lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles Thursday, June 26 against TMZ for posting the clip of his sex tape on its site and airing it on TMZ TV. Alleged the celebrity website violated his rights to privacy and publicity, infringed upon his copyright and trademark and misappropriated his name and likeness, he thus is seeking damages and asking an injunction prohibiting the wide spread of the video.

Philip Gutierrez cited Troyer's motion "demonstrated that he will suffer irreparable harm to his reputation" if the tape is distributed as the reason for him to issue the restraining order. TMZ pulled the clip down Friday evening after the ruling.
