Judge Says It’s Too Early for Diddy’s Financials in Assault Case

The judge overseeing a lawsuit filed against Sean “Diddy” Combs for allegedly punching a man in the face has ruled that it is too early in the trial for the plaintiff to request the Bad Boy head’s financial information. The attorney representing the man, Gerard Rechnitzer, recently requested the information in an effort to determine what punitive damages, if any, Diddy should have to pay if he is found liable for the assault. According to the Associated Press, the trial is scheduled to begin on May 27. Rechnitzer claims that Puff punched him the face at a post-Oscars party in February of 2007. The mogul recently filed a declaration stating that any injuries Rechnitzer received were “caused by his forward motion against my stationary open hand.” Diddy has reportedly filed a cross-complaint denying any responsibility for the plaintiff’s injuries and placing the blame on a number of as-yet unnamed defendants.
