A Brooklyn appellate court has rejected the claims of man who sued over a comedy bit on a late-night show that used a YouTube video without his permission.

The Appellate Division, Second Department, on Wednesday upheld a lower court’s refusal to let Dovid Yehuda Sondik, known to Brooklyn neighbors as “the Flying Rabbi,” recover damages from late night host Jimmy Kimmel or the network, ABC.
