“Jersey Shore” Star “Snooki” Sued for $7 Million

The diminutive "Jersey Shore" star has been hit with a counter-claim by the company she sued.

It's not unusual to see Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi get entangled in a brawl, but they aren't typically of the legal variety.

The 24-year-old "Jersey Shore" star has been hit with a $7 million counter-claim by a licensing company called SRG Ventures, in response to a claim Polizzi had filed against them last October.

Polizzi, who partnered with SRG with the understanding that they would help her launch a merchandise line including watches, shoes, lingerie and even school supplies, claims the company did not fulfill its obligation to secure branding partnerships and the appropriate capital.

Now SRG is firing back, saying that Polizzi violated the agreement by allegedly negotiating behind the company's back with brands.

SRG's lawyer, Robert J. Hantman, released a statement saying, "Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG's version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court."
