Mischa Barton wants to see ''real justice'' happen in her revenge porn case.

The 'OC' star is currently in court for an ongoing civil suit against her former boyfriend Adam Spaw, who allegedly tried to sell sex tapes of the actress.

However, Judge James E. Blancarte granted a continuance on Thursday because Spaw was admitted to hospital on Tuesday morning for surgery on Thursday, his lawyer said.

Speaking to reporters, the 31-year-old star said: ''I'm going to see this case through to the end. I am very happy with what the judge has decided today. I don't think it's possible at this point to have seen it through long enough.

''I think that's important that we see real justice happen here with this case so I'm more happy that the judge seems to understand this type of case.''

Her lawyer Lisa Bloom hopes other women will see Mischa's case and know how important it is to ''stand up for your rights''.

She added: ''In Mischa's case, she has always alleged that these images were taken without her knowledge or consent. It's a form of domestic abuse as the Judge has ordered in this case. Mischa has been seeing this through, the justice system sometimes moves slowly but she's committed to that and I'm committed to standing with her.

''I think she wanted everybody to know that this is wrong, this is a women's rights issue and that you can fight back and stand up against it. And stand up for your rights, it doesn't do any good to have these laws if we don't stand up for your rights, whether you're a celebrity or ordinary person, it's not pleasant to be in this situation but you can stand up for your rights and win. We got a win against the other defendant, it's only a matter of time before we get a win against this defendant too.''
