Victor Whitmill, who gave the boxer his Maori-inspired facial ink, claimed it was illegally reproduced on the face of Ed Helms in The Hangover Part 2.<br /><br />The case threatened to block the film from being released later this week.<br /><br />But today a judge dismissed the lawsuit, much to the relief of film bosses.<br /><br />'We are very gratified by the Court&rsquo;s decision which will allow the highly anticipated film, The Hangover 2, to be released on schedule this week around the world,' the studio said in a statement.<br /><br />'Plaintiff&rsquo;s failed attempt to enjoin H2 in order to try and extract a massive settlement payment from Warner Bros. was highly inappropriate and unwarranted.<br />&nbsp;</span></p>
