A $120 million lawsuit has been filed against Janet Jackson over claims that her two bodyguards grabbed him and choked him.

( Leonard Salati says the alleged assault occurred at Club Marquee in February 2004. According to the lawsuit, Salati attempted to slip Jackson a note when her security team suddenly went into attack mode.

Jackson’s lawyers had attempted to have the case thrown out, but Justice Rolando Acosta decided to move forward based on a discrepancy over the amount of bodyguards assigned to Jackson that night.

According to and other sites, Jackson’s camp says she only had one bodyguard with her and boyfriend producer Jermaine Dupri. However, reps for Club Marquee say she had three.

The judge reportedly said: “Not withstanding [the] counsel’s valiant effort to shield Ms Jackson [the law grants] no exemptions based on celebrity status.”
