Gerard Butler is in the clear over that whole dust-up he had with a photog back in 2008.

A judge dismissed a misdemeanor battery charge today. Butler got into it with a pap after a premiere party in October 2008. Butler had claimed the photog had followed him around all night.

He could have gotten six months in jail if convicted.
