VerneThe Verne Troyer sex tape scandal isn't over. Troyer settled with the porn distributor who got ahold of the tape and and successfully got the U.S. District Court to block the tape's release.

But then the woman on the tape, Troyer's ex-girlfriend Ranae Shrider, started making trouble. So now Troyer is suing her for $20 million, claiming she's abusive and has inflicted emotional distress on the "Austin Powers" actor. Troyer also claims a copyright on the tape, though it's not exactly clear why he's entitled to it. Here's a copy of the complaint.
