Sascha Baron Cohen won the frivolous lawsuit brought forth by Richelle Lawson in convincing fashion. She sued him for $25,000 in damages due to his actions as Borat during a Bingo game. The money was for emotional distress after she corrected herself from the initial stance that his crew assaulted her when they went to take the mic away from him. She ended up being ordered to pay the $17,000 in legal fees Cohen's team racked up for the suit. I always love when frivolous suits end up with the claimant having to pay the fees for the defendant.
