LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has given the green light to a former contestant on "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love" in her pursuit against several online adult sites.

In the suit, Rozlyn Papa says she wasn't included as cast in Lexington Steele's "Pole Position: Lex POV."

Papa filed suit at Los Angeles Superior Court over allegations that a number of companies falsely advertised that she was the lead actress in "Pole Position: Lex POV."

Mainstream media outlet TMZ and adult sites JuggCash.com and Brazzers.com, owned by Mansef Inc., were named to the suit. So were Mansef-owned sites PornHub.com, KeezMovies.com, Tube8.com, Peeperz.com and ExtremeTube.com.

In Tuesday's action at Los Angeles Superior Court, Judge Debra K. Weintraub rejected arguments by the defense to dismiss the case; however, she said TMZ's article accompanying it, called "Rozlyn Papa's Sex Tape," was protected free speech.

After word ran rampant that Papa was allegedly featured in the video, TMZ reported it as truth but later said, "the flick may not be Roz at all."

Papa is seeking damages for lost income, invasion of privacy, lost reputation and mental anguish, according to her attorney, Roderick Lindblom.

In March, Steele told XBIZ that the video of the performer in the tape wasn't Papa but another actress — Lucy B.

"I feel for Rozlyn, because that is not her," Steele said. "The girl in the video is from the Czech Republic, all of the girls in this release were shot on location in Prague. That girl has never traveled to the U.S."

Montreal-based Mansef last year was sold to new owners, which spun off the company as Manwin Inc.
