Federal Judge Will Not Take Judicial Notice That “The Situation” Is A Celebrity

October 1st, 2013

Michael Sorentino is “allegedly” a celebrity:

In his First Amended Complaint, Plaintiff, Michael Sorrentino, alleges that he is a celebrity.1

1 Plaintiff, Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino, alleges that he is “an internationally known TV star who has appeared as one of the stars on the MTV show ‘Jersey Shore’ . . .,” among other television programs. First Am. Compl. ¶ 3.

The suit seems to be about the failure to deliver Sitch a $100,000 motorcycle in Jersey, and payment for speaking and other promotional fees. The Court finds a lack of personal jurisdiction. Sitch’s arms are strong, but he lacks a long-arm here.
