Judge bans distribution of Anna Nicole Smith's boob job video

A Los Angeles judge has extended the order barring a plastic surgeon from profiting from a tape that shows the late model Anna Nicole Smith getting a boob job.
Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff made a permanent ruling on the basis of Smith’s partner Howard K. Stern’s request that sought the prohibition of the sale, distribution and dissemination of the tape by Dr. Gerald Wayne Johnson, reports E! Online.
Stern has alleged that Johnson has breached many laws by filming the whole surgery without the late model without her permission.
However, the doctor has defended himself and said that he always gets his patient’s permission and promises to keep all tapes confidential ‘during a patient's lifetime’.
On August 3, the judge had issued a permanent injunction blocking Johnson’s wife Alana from releasing the tape.
Though Beckloff did not want to include Alana in the injunction since she was not served papers in the case, he later considered she was only being evasive after she was involved in a high-speed chase to avoid being given court papers.
A hearing has been scheduled on September 14 to seek a progress review on whether Alan Johnson has been served papers or not.
