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.

If the Pap is that close and in a celebrities personal space I think law should allow a celebrity to punch, beat or whatever to them ... No questions asked. I would like to see laws passed allowing this. I think if the celebrity loses their right to privacy the pap should loose their right to no bodily harm if in space or are that close to be hit.. Just saying ...

I would have sucker punched a paparazzi if they got in my face too. He should have knocked the photog out and stomped him.

What a load of trolley. I used to see him around Hampstead all the time, he was a really nice man, I don't believe he would do anything like that.

THESE ENGLANDERS CANNOT COME TO OUR COUNTRY AND PUSH AMERICANS AROUND. ENGLAND IS A BARBARIC THIRD WORLD COUNTRY AND THEY ALL GOT BAD TEETH CAUSE ALL THE DENTISTS ARE DRUNK ALL THE TIME. WE SHOULD DEPORT ALL THEM BACK TO ENGLAND AND THEN INVADE ENGLAND AND PUT THEM ALL IN PRISON AND TREAT THEM LIKE WE DONE TO THOSE INSURGENTS FROM IRAQ AND MAKE THEM TAKE ALL THEIR CLOTHES OFF AND THEN BRING IN THE DOGS TO BARK AT THEM AND SCARE THEM WHILE THEY ARE NAKED. LIKE WE DONE TO THEM PRISIONERS AT ABU NAGRIB. THAT WOULD MAKE THAT 007 DUDE TALK, HE WOULD TELL US EVERYTHING ABOUT WHEN HE ATTACKED THAT OTHER GUY.

Brosnan seen in photo on Internet with Ron Meyer whose wife worked for Anthony Pellicano, the wiretapping private investigator. Brosnan worked with John McTiernen the director who wiretapped using Pellicano and was sentenced recently to jail. Brosnan is in with all those wiretapping guys. So it goes in Hollywierd-they all stalk and wiretap each other. But allegedly, Brosnan has done that to an innocent female from Malibu whilst living with his live in girlfriend Keely Shaye Smith. Watch out Rosen- only talk from a secure phone and watch out for bugs too and have your lawyers phone checked for wiretapping too. The FBI should question Brosnan and jail him for lying too. The whole battery incident looked premeditated by Brosnan in the photos.

Wow! I'm sure you're very proud of yourself for your remarks. You've truly demonstrated your ignorance and how well educated (NOT) you really are. You've made absolutely no sense and clearly made a fool of yourself. What does a British guy hitting an American guy have to do invading Britain? What an imbecile you truly are! Peace!
