So the case of the Miami plastic surgeon versus the Playboy pinup has been dismissed--for now. The California court came to the conclusion that the state has no jurisdiction over Dr. Leonard Hochstein, so the motion to quash it was granted, the 500k plus default judgment originally awarded to former Miss Norway Monica Hansen was reversed and the case was thrown out of court. But it's still not over yet. Expect Dr. Hochstein to sue Hansen in Florida for damages to his practice and reputation as well as for personal unrest, court and legal fees. Hansen, who is based in Los Angeles, was just spotted in Chicago, where she is, uh, working, and, according to a members only adult website, is available only by "special request." Unfortunately for Hansen, there's also now a special request for her to appear in a Miami courtroom very soon---pro bono, of course.
