gretchen and jay
In the never-ending battle between ex-lovers Gretchen Rossi and Jay Photoglou, it's Jay's turn to sue, again. He recently won $22,000 in court costs for the restraining she filed and dropped in March 2009. Gretchen was served at a party last Saturday night given by Peggy Tanous, the newest Orange County housewife.
In the court documents, Jay lays out his case against Rossi, in full detail. It was déjà vu in many ways, having followed and chronicled the story at More Absurdities Readers Rant. Jay has a direct line to radaronline, they always get the story first.

Photoglou is suing Rossi for libel, slander and five other counts. The suit was originally filed in Los Angeles but for procedural reasons he needed to re-file it in Orange County.
Rossi also has an active lawsuit against Photoglou.
Rossi has at times denied she was romantically involved with Photoglou but he has provided ample proof of their former romantic relationship. Now, their only relationship exists in court, where they have battled continuously for the past year - and it doesn't look like the war is going to end any time soon.
