Matthew Fox

Assault Accuser

DROPS Her Case

Exclusive Details

0531_matthew_fox_bus_driver
Matthew Fox is officially in the clear over allegations he assaulted a female bus driver in Cleveland, Ohio last year.

Heather Bormann -- the bus driver -- has dismissed her lawsuit against Fox with prejudice, meaning she cannot file it again. 

Her lawyer, J. Norman Stark, tells TMZ, Fox did not pay Bormann a penny by way of settlement. In fact, Stark tells us he actually dropped Bormann as a client recently because she was difficult to deal with.

For his part, Fox dropped his countersuit against Bormann -- in which he had sued her for defamation, claiming Heather made up the whole story.

The dismissal comes the same week Dominic Monaghan claimed that Fox had a history of beating women, something we're told Fox vehemently denies.

Stark, ironically, tells us he believed his client -- that Fox punched her in the vagina -- and says Bormann dropped the case because Fox and his lawyers frightened her with his ability to wage legal war against her.

I don't usually comment on a persons appearance but I can't hold it in any longer. If she had said he punched her in the boob, I could understand it, they are visable. But to punch her in the vagina means he would have had to go through rolls and layers of fat to reach it.

none of this makes sense, especially when Dominic put his 2 cents in - something is missing

Even if Fox did not assault her, and I think he probably did, apparently dragging her through the press--to be ridiculed for her weight, profession and general appearance--is still a legitimate legal tactic. Fox has already lost in the court of public opinion, but he can remain in denial because there was no jury trial or verdict. Sad.

I love his acting and it makes me sad to think any of that is true. Maybe it his drinking(no excuse).
