Hooray for small victories!

Brandi Passante, star of A&E's "Storage Wars," won a lawsuit last Friday over a porn site she claims posted a fake video and fake nude photos of her. The lawsuit also maintained that the site offered merchandise that resembled her, notes the Inquisitr.

According to The Wrap, Passante sued Hunter Moore, former operator of the XXX website Is Anyone Up, for $2.5 million in damages. The judge indeed ruled in her favor, but awarded her only $750.

Per ExtraTV, Judge James V. Selna of U.S. District Court in central California awarded her the small compensation despite her claims because Passante "[provided] absolutely no support for this calculation of damages." But in addition to the $750, Selna ruled that Passante's attorney fees will be covered and Moore must "remove any remaining and undisclosed content of video from all websites."

Passante also suffered from Moore's taunting throughout the proceedings, reports Web Pro News, when he sent explicit photos of his privates to her attorney.
