    Kanye West is being sued by a photographer who claims that he sustained injuries after a tussle with West's security detail three years ago. Damn those statutes of limitation and their length.

    The snapper, named Michael Vasquez, claims that the assault took place during a May 2008 party in New York. West was performing at the event and Vasquez, 44, claims that "his agents, servants and/or employees acting in the course and within the scope of their employment, detained and/or threatened and/or caused plaintiff to suffer injuries."

    Vasquez contends that "the assault and battery was committed by the defendant, West, [his] agents, servants and/or employees, with malice" and caused him "physical, mental and emotional illness."

    Do you think Kanye West will Tweet about this lawsuit?
