Sued, Not Shaken -- Pap Brings Suit Against Pierce

12/10/2007 8:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pierce BrosnanThe photog who claims that Pierce Brosnan sucker-punched him at a Malibu mall just brought a lawsuit to 007's door, alleging assault and battery. Stirring, indeed!

In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the pap, Robert Rosen, claims that Brosnan "punched, hit, struck, and attacked" him in the tiff on Oct. 26 (and those are different how?) and that somehow, the alleged attack was "excessive, unlawful, malicious," and so forth, causing him to "lose earnings in the future." As for the legality of the incident, the DA declined to press charges.

The suit seeks undisclosed damages for the assault and battery, and for negligence. In a statement, Rosen's lawyer calls Brosnan "out of control." Brosnan's lawyer couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Sounds like this photog is just after money. If he was punched by a mechanic or a hairdresser or just some guy on the street, do you think he'd be suing? C'mon, get real. He just wants money and know Brosnan is rich. LOSER photog.

YAWN    

Let's hope the pap looses. I guess the pap's First Amendment rights make it okay to invade your personal space and stick a camera in your face and even block your path, but Brosnan doesn't have any rights to be able to walk anywhere without the stalkarazzi getting in his face and antagonizing him into a confrontation.

Once the suit is lost - open season on paps - punch & run over & drag - all fair game.

I don't dig the papps either but, c'mon on, this stupid-ass lightweight talent Ms. Pierce Brosnan attacked the photog unprovoked merely because she didn't want her little picture taken. Lame-ass wuss--you're a freakin' celebrity, what the hell do you think: You can dictate if Hollywood's papp's can take your pic when you're out in public or not?! Screw you, go back to Britain, where you can walk about all you want and not even be noticed apart from all the other freaks with bad teeth.

Pfft    

He's lost earnings in the future? I guess that means he's afraid to harass other celebrities for fear he'll get smacked again. Or maybe other outfits won't hire him because he's a jerk that stalked children. How sad. He seemed perfectly fine when he went on TMZ TV the day after the story broke. Putz.

TMZ, when are you going to program your system to put in double spaces after the end of sentences? Always double space after a period, question mark or exclamation point. Am I the only one who made it past the 5th grade?

Once 007 is on your case it is best to fade into the woodwork.

Actually, TMZ, hit, punch, and attack ARE different. If someone came up to you and swung their hand and it hit you on the back of your knee, would you say you'd been punched? No. And if someone came up to you and tripped you, made you fall and stomped on you repeatedly, you could say you'd been attacked...but not necessarily hit or punched.

Oh, so this the newest way to make money? Stalk actors, pester them to the point of anger, let themselves be hit, and punched. Viola~ Lawsuit!
I really hope the stalker loses this one. Stalkers are out of control!
