BROOMALL–A hearing was scheduled on Wednesday morning before Magisterial District Judge Robert D'Agostino in District Court #32-1-24 in regards to a civil lawsuit between Broomall resident and celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman and 'Octomom' Nadya Suleman.
Suleman and her attorney were nowhere in sight at Wednesday morning's court hearing in Broomall. According to court employees, Suleman's attorney had called the court to try and push back the hearing. In addition, Suleman never signed the court documents that were sent to her, said a court employee.
A ruling was announed by mid-afternoon on Wednesday. According to a court employee, the judge had ruled in favor of Feldman in the civil lawsuit against Suleman.
Since Suleman and a representative did not appear at Wednesday's court hearing and failed to file an answer to the court in the given amount of time, a default judgment against the defendant was entered, according to a court employee. According to the court employee, "She [Suleman] owes him [Feldman] the money."
"I'm very happy to get the victory," stated Feldman about the judge's ruling. "I just want this to be over with and hopefully I'll get the ring back or the money."
Any relationship that was left between Feldman and Suleman is apparently non-existent. "I don't want to deal with trash anymore," said Feldman about Suleman. "From now on, just real celebrities for Celebrity Boxing."
On Nov. 13 at approximately 11:35 a.m., Feldman came in to the Marple Police Station to file a police report about a missing diamond engagement ring that belonged to Feldman's ex-wife and which was taken by Suleman and never returned.
"The ring was used for PR use and I was told that I would receive $5,000 for the involvement," claimed Feldman in the press release. According to the press release, Feldman also claims Suleman's manager promised to return the ring after the event.
Feldman told police that in February 2012, he had a public entertainment event scheduled with Suleman at The Warehouse located on MacDade Boulevard in Woodlyn.
According to the police report, Feldman told police that at that event, strictly for publicity purposes, Feldman had proposed to Suleman with a diamond engagement ring.
The proposal and ring presentation was done with the understanding between both parties that it was only done for publicity purposes, said Feldman in the police report.
Since that time, the business relationship between the two have ended but Suleman has yet to return the ring. According to the police report, Feldman made numerous attempts to contact Suleman and her manager to no avail.
