Good news for Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Lenny Hochstein. The $564,555 default judgement awarded to former patient and centerfold Monica Hansen in July for unlawful usage of her image on his website, was lifted in a Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday. But it's not over yet: Hochstein's team filed a motion for the case to be moved to Florida because that's where Hochstein practices and that's where he performed all those tweaks on Hansen, who also used to live in Miami. Team Hochstein expects for the motion to be granted and in the meantime, according to a statement, "Dr. Hochstein is pleased with the outcome of today's hearing. He believes now that he will be able to defend himself and tell his side of the story. The truth about Monica Hansen will come out that she is a person whose morals are questionable at best and also a liar." Morals, it seems, were the only things the plastic surgeon wasn't able to enhance.
