Jayde Nicole Celebrates Courthouse Victory

Posted Thursday October 7, 2010 8:18 AM GMT

Having good reason to celebrate, Jayde Nicole was spotted partying it up with her girls in West Hollywood, CA on Wednesday night (October 6).

Clad in a tight-fitting little black dress, the Playboy beauty and her ladies first hit up Nobu before heading over to Colony to down some Jager and dance the night away.

As for being in such a cheerful mood, Miss Nicole was just recently awarded nearly $36,000 in legal fees from Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis after a defamation suit in which he filed against her was tossed out of court.

Jayde’s attorney, Paul Clifford, said, “We’re very happy. One of the methods SLAPP uses is making the losing party pay attorneys fees. I don’t know about Francis, but this may influence others not to file baseless claims.”

Meanwhile, Nicole and Francis still have other pending matters - as each filed assault charges against the other following a fight at a West Hollywood nightclub last year.
