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 bet there was contact made between Fox and Bormann, but it was probably a bump or an accidental touch, and as soon as she figured out that he was "that Lost guy", her story got super-exaggerated.

He punched her in the vagina??? Really???That must have been one powerhouse upper cut, the woman is very heavyset. Was she standing on the seat, sitting with her legs spread? Really??? What a joke!
The courts have to clamp down on these erroneous, vexatious suits filed to see how much stars will pay to make them go away.

Good to hear.
Stark says he dropped his client because she was difficult, probably indicative of her attitude during the Fox argument on the bus.
Stark also says he believes her...but he has to say that, in order to keep his reputation after representing her.
Either way, it's a win for Mathew Fox, any damage to his reputation can recover.

He didn't pay her any money to drop the search, but she has agreed to send a search party up there to try and locate his fist.

BS! She got paid off. If Stark dropped her as a client, then how would he know about any settlement?

Now, I know she was full of B.S! There is no way any man in his right mind would go anywhere near her vagina!
