The cover of the book, "Hot Chicks With Douchebags," that landed the allegedly d-bag author in a stew of legal hot water.

Hot Chicks 0, Douchebags 1.

A judge Tuesday dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed by three women whose pictures were featured in Pulitzer Prize near-miss, "Hot Chicks with Douchebags," The Smoking Gun reports.

Yvette Gorzelany, Joanna Obiedzinski, and Paulina Pakos, who had been photographed while clubbing in Clifton, New Jersey,  sued author and great American Jay Louis last year over their appearance in the "Douchebags" book.

Judge Menelaos Toskos said in the Feb. 6 ruling that the 2008 book was obviously meant for satirical purposes and that no reader should take the "novel's" content seriously.

"How can a person reasonably believe that in 1981 archaeologist Renee Emile Bellaqua uncovered in a cave in Gali Israel a highly controversial Third Century religious scroll suggesting that the "douchey/hotty" coupling was a troublesome facet in early social religious structures?" Toskos said in the ruling.

Uh, not us.
