‘Jersey Shore’ DVD ban fails

Judges rule in favor of MTV reality show

A man who says he was beaten during an episode of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” reality show has lost his bid to stop the release of a video depicting the incident.

Stephen Izzo Jr. of Bayville says he was punched by one of the show’s cast members outside a Seaside Heights night club.

Superior Court Judge Joseph L. Foster ruled Monday that Izzo “failed to demonstrate any financial or irreparable harm” he’d suffer from the distribution of a DVD box set of the show’s first season.

Foster said Izzo is not identifiable to viewers because the show’s producers obscured his face.

The show focuses on the escapades of eight 20-somethings thrown together at a shore house last summer.
