A Central California judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed against the Kardashian sisters after they pulled their endorsement of a prepaid debit card that drew criticism for its high fees.

A Fresno Superior Court judge ruled last week that sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian should not be responsible for damages that resulted in their pulling out of a deal to endorse the card, which was criticized by the Connecticut attorney general's office in November.

Fresno-based Revenue Resource Group LLC sued the reality show starlets in January, claiming the sisters' negative public comments about the card cost them $75 million.

Attorneys for the sisters' company, Dash Dolls LLC and their mother, Kris Kardashian, argued the case should be dismissed because it violated their free speech rights. Court records show a judge agreed and issued a ruling dismissing the case on June 7.
