Last year Game was court ordered to pay $7.1 million to Priscilla Rainey, a contestant on his reality show who accused him of sexually assaulting her. Now it looks like there’s a glimmer of hope for him where he may not have to pay so much.

Game is currently expected to pay the lucrative amount of money for “physical, psychological, and emotional damages,” from a night in which he’s accused of aggressively groping Rainey without her consent, including “forcefully reach[ing] his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks.”

He’s been unsuccessfully fighting for a retrial, being denied a bid for a new trial in December due to a technicality in the paperwork. But today Bossip reports he finally won a bid from llinois Federal Court Judge Gary Feinerman, which means he’ll be given the opportunity seek a retrial and file motions to reduce the damages he’s been ordered to pay. But that doesn’t mean he’s out of the woods yet.

According to the docs he filed, he feels the $7.1 million is “monstrously excessive” especially since he couldn’t appear in court due to emergency surgery.
