LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Friday awarded adult performer Lylith Lavey $130,000 in damages against performer Mr. Marcus.

Lavey sued Mr. Marcus alleging she suffered emotional distress after she became exposed to syphilis during a BangBros shoot with him as her partner.

Lavey, who hasn't contracted syphilis, said in the suit that she not only suffered emotional distress, but castigation from others in her industry as a result of the shoot.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Minning heard testimony from Lavey on Friday before ordering Mr. Marcus to pay up.

Mr. Marcus was found to be in default as he “abandoned his defense of this case,” according to another Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Amy Hogue who heard the case.

Lavey’s alleged claims in the lawsuits stem from a June 2012 BangBros shoot in Encino, Calif., according to the Daily News. Lavey, in a separate suit, also is suing BangBros.

In a resulting BangBros video, Lavey could be seen giving fellatio to Mr. Marcus, whose penis clearly showed evidence of a possible STI.   

Mr. Marcus was sentenced to 30 days in county jail in 2013 for knowingly exposing other co-stars to syphilis.

Mr. Marcus did not immediately respond for comment to XBIZ on Monday.
