Luis Ruelas can breathe a sigh of relief after a New Jersey judge ruled in his favor in his court case against ex-fiancée Vanessa Reiser.

The highly contentious fallout between Ruelas and Reiser may finally be coming to an end. Although the couple broke up more than three years ago, wounds have still not been mended. Reiser, who is a licensed therapist who specializes in narcissistic abuse, had her complaint against Ruelas thrown out in court.

Ruelas had previously been accused of stalking by Reiser.

In a statement made to Page Six, Ruelas’ attorney Marco Laracca made an unambiguous statement regarding Reiser. “The court not only dismissed Ms. Reiser’s complaint and denied her application for a permanent restraining order, but also found that she was ‘obsessed’ with Mr. Ruelas, continuously bothering he and his family.”

“In essence, the court held that the filing of the restraining order was akin to a publicity stunt,” Laracca said. Louie was completely vindicated today and looks forward to putting this all behind him. We thank the court for its lengthy, well-reasoned, and factually-supported opinion.”

Vanessa Reiser Remains Adamant

Meanwhile, Resier’s attorney Douglas Anton told Page Six that his client respected the court’s decision. “Our goal was always her protection by exposing the truth about Luis’ offensive conduct,” he said. “Indeed, for her protection, we were ‘obsessed’ with proving Luis did this invasive thing, so that he never does it again. Vanessa feels completely vindicated and now protected by having outing him for this offensive conduct.”

Ruelas does have a history of hiring private investigators. Well, at least that’s according to a confession he made in the Season 13 finale of Real Housewives Of New Jersey. “I’m not talking, like, gossip,” Ruelas said. “Like, Bo Dietl, who’s, like, one of the most famous private investigators in the country, one of my best friends, brought me information on each person in this group. There’s so much more.”

Dietl, who is a former NYPD officer turned private investigator, spoke to Entertainment Tonight to deny the claims made by Ruelas. “I know Louie and Teresa, I’ve known ’em for a long time, over the years. I’ve known them very well; I’ve been to their home for their housewarming of their home. I’m not part of this Housewives stuff,” said Dietl.

“All I really know is, I like Louie and I like Teresa. Now, all of a sudden, he gets into a beef with his brother-in-law. The next thing he opens his mouth, and the brother-in-law knows he knows me, so what is he gonna say? ‘I got the most famous private investigator – I got dirt on every one of yous.’ It was all bologna and it never happened.”

Luis Ruelas’s Legal Team Enjoying Their Victory In Court

For now, it appears the Ruelas and his legal team are happy with their win.

Another member of Ruelas team, Teresa Giudice’s longtime lawyer, James Leonard Jr, also made a statement in regards to the case. “We won, they lost. Period, that’s the end of it. The judge not only rejected their view of the case, she eviscerated it,” said Leonard. “Simply put, the court found that Vanessa Reiser was not credible. [She] was not harassed by Mr. Ruelas and is not the victim that she has unsuccessfully portrayed herself to be.”

Leonard concluded his statement by referring to Reiser as “Someone who has routinely and repeatedly violated court orders. [Reiser] has an insatiable obsession with Mr. Ruelas and Teresa Giudice that is fueled by a desire to promote herself, her business, and her false narratives at all costs.”
