LOS ANGELES — A judge awarded nearly $130,000 to an adult film actress who alleged a fellow actor exposed her to syphilis.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Minning heard testimony Friday from Heather DeAngelo, known in the industry as Lylith Lavey, before ordering Marcus Spencer, who goes by the stage name Mr. Marcus, to pay her $129,360. Spencer did not participate in the court proceedings and was found to be in default.

DeAngelo sued Spencer in September 2012 after finding out he had the communicable disease, according to her complaint alleging fraud, negligence, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress. The scenes involving DeAngelo and Spencer were filmed in July 2012 in Encino, according to court records.

DeAngelo did not allege she contracted the disease.

A previous judge handling the case wrote in an earlier ruling about Spencer’s disregard of the lawsuit.

“It appears (Spencer) has abandoned his defense of this case,” Judge Amy Hogue wrote.

Hogue stated that DeAngelo believed her career has been hurt by her exposure to syphilis.

“She feels that her reputation in the adult film world has been diminished as a result of filming with (Spencer),” according to Hogue.

In February, De Angelo sued the production company behind the filming, BangBros, alleging the firm should have known Spencer had the communicable disease. BangBros has filed a motion to dismiss her case.

The county issued a temporary moratorium on pornographic filming after the DeAngelo-Spencer incident and implemented stricter requirements to ensure that pornographic producers ensure the safety of the actors, according to the complaint.

Heather DeAngelo, aka Lylith Lavey, is also suing BangBros, an adult-entertainment producer and distributor, claiming they knew porn actor Jesse Spencer, known as Mr. Marcus, had syphilis when the two filmed a scene together.

Porn actor Jesse Spencer, known as Mr. Marcus, was sentenced to 30 days in jail for exposing two adult-film co-stars to syphilis. His sentence included 36 months probation and 15 days of community labor. He has been ordered by a judge to pay $130,000 to Heather DeAngelo, known in the porn industry as Lylith Lavey, over scenes they filmed in Encino.
