A judge has dismissed a $75 million lawsuit against the Kardashian sisters after they walked away from a controversial credit card scheme, insisting the stars had no obligation to endorse a potentially “unlawful” product.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney signed up to front the Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard, which allowed parents to give their children a small amount of credit so they can keep track of their finances.

But the trio withdrew their support for the card last November after the attorney general of Connecticut launched a scathing attack on the siblings for promoting it.

Bosses at the Revenue Resource Group, the company behind the scheme, took legal action against the reality TV stars in January, blaming them for heavy losses.

However, Fresno Superior Court Judge Jeff Hamilton has thrown out the lawsuit after deciding that Revenue’s attorneys had not proved they could win the breach of contract case.

In his ruling, the judge writes, “(Revenue Resource Group) has not met its burden to show that it is likely to prevail, because it has not addressed the claim the contract involved an unlawful/fraudulent product or how damages could be proven even had the defendants remained silent, given the record before the Court of apparently universal condemnation of the product’s profit making features.”

Hamilton has ordered Revenue Resource Group bosses to pay the Kardashians $6,825 in legal fees, according to the Associated Press.
