Judge OKs lawsuit against Naomi Campbell

Aug. 23, 2007 at 3:29 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- A lawsuit against supermodel Naomi Campbell will proceed, as a New York judge ruled Campbell's fiery past potentially can be used against her.

The suit was filed by Gaby Gibson, who alleged Campbell was verbally abusive a number of times and physically attacked her in January 2006, the New York Post reported Thursday. The alleged flare-up occurred because Gibson couldn't locate a pair of Stella McCartney jeans.

Attorneys for the supermodel had argued unsuccessfully that the "scandalous and prejudicial material" in Gibson's suit would bias a jury.

The suit alleged Gibson was hit repeatedly while Campbell yelled "discriminatory comments."

Campbell, who pleaded guilty to a similar assault on an employee earlier this year, has denied the claims in Gibson's suit and was never criminally charged.
