MIAMI — A Judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by an anonymous woman involved in the Kid Rock/Scott Stapp sex tape, saying that the suit could not proceed unless the plaintiff revealed her identity.

“There's no showing on why the claim should be allowed to proceed under a fictitious name,” Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Gerald Hubbart said in his ruling.

One of the four women who were taped performing oral sex on Stapp and Rock in a tour bus in 1999 sued Stapp and Red Light District, but not Rock, in Miami-Dade County Court for invasion of privacy and emotional distress. The suit sought to block the release of the tape as well as unspecified damages.

The plaintiff, identified in court papers as “Jane Doe,” has 20 days to refile the suit under her real name.

Dawn Ausenanger, attorney for the unidentified woman, claimed that forcing the woman to disclose her name would further compound the alleged injuries suffered by her client.

“She's not a celebrity,” Ausenanger said. “She's not a public figure. She was promised there would never be any intentional commercial use or profit made from the tape.”

Red Light lawyer Thomas Julin disagreed, praising the Judge’s ruling.

“She's not a child, she's not abused,” Julin said. “She can't claim invasion of privacy because this tape was made in the presence of others.”

In the meantime, the legal battle over the tape continues, with Stapp and Rock seeking to block Red Light from distributing the tape.
