Miss Universe Vs Ex-Miss Pennsylvania (Recap)



.
On Tuesday Miss Universe Vs Ex-Miss Pennsylvania was a top story. Here is the recap: (TMZ) Donald Trump delivered as promised -- the Miss Universe organization has officially filed a crushing defamation suit against ex-Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin ... for saying the pageant's a fraud.

TMZ broke the story ... Miss Universe owner Donald Trump gave Monnin a 24-hour ultimatum to retract her statements that pageant winners are predetermined -- but Monnin refused.

So this morning, one of Donald's lawyers tells TMZ, the Miss Universe Organization -- Miss USA's parent company -- has filed suit before a private court, and intends to go after Monnin for all she's worth.

The lawsuit was not filed in a public court because of a stipulation in Monnin's contract -- which requires any dispute to be handled through private arbitration.

We're told the Miss Universe team has filed two separate causes of action -- both seeking big bucks. How much? We're told, "Significant damages."

Attempts to reach Monnin were unsuccessful. - more on this story
