A Superior Court judge in Montreal has upheld a U.S. ruling that awarded more than $2.5 million to an American porn star who sued a [Canadian] man, and his companies, for illegally copying and distributing his DVDs.

Judge Louis Gouin said there was no reason to block execution of the 2011 judgment from U.S. District Court in California requiring Alain Elmaleh and his adult-film distribution companies Kaytel Video Distribution and Leisure Time Video Canada Inc. to pay the money to Jules Jordan (real name Ashley Gasper).

“I’m very satisfied that the great courts of Quebec have acknowledged the merits of our case,” said Gasper, 42, whose body of work as an performer and director includes such titles as Lex The Impaler and Internal Damnation.

“It’s been almost a 10-year battle, but I’m here to see it through to the end. You do what’s necessary to combat something that’s done wrong to you.”

The incidents at the heart of the litigation date back more than a decade, when Jordan’s distributor starting getting an abnormally large number of DVDs returned for more than a dozen of his movies.
