Hilary Swank

Drops Gloves in Legal Fight

Over 'Million $$$ Baby' Face

7/28/2012 2:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0727_hilary_swank_gettyHilary Swank decided to bow out early in her legal battle against an electronics company in California ... dropping the lawsuit she had filed against them for using her pretty mug without permission.

If you recall, Swank filed a suit against Robert's Home Audio and Video in May, alleging they illegally used an image of her from the film "Million Dollar Baby" on their company website, without consent.
The Oscar winner has since filed legal docs in L.A. Superior Court, asking a judge to drop the case. The case was officially dismissed on July 19.

Robert Yates -- the lawyer for the home and audio co -- tells TMZ ... he believes the actress scrapped the suit because her case was weak to begin with and it just wasn't worth the effort, adding "It's a lot of bother for very little potential benefit."

A rep for Hilary had no comment.

For a supposed A list star she does a lot of B list things.
Maybe Bashir Assad will invite her over for his birthday.

Keep it real. Greedy lawyers had her file suit knowing she would spend more on legal fees than she would ever get out of this company. Glad her brain wasn't beaten into stupidity in her movie and she dropped the case.

Weak case? Nah. Little to gain and a lot to pay out to lawyers, yes. She doesn't need a lawsuit, all she needs to do is file a cease and desist. If they take (or took) the image down, that's all that matters. Making money for lawyers is not a useful employment of time over this kind of thing.

I have absolutely no sympathy for an actress who goes to a bloody Dictators party for a million bucks, and later tries to cover it up by saying that she had no idea about the tortures he committed. Google it byatch! An idiot through and through.

I liked Hilary in Million Dollar Baby and a few others, pretty woman and talented, kind of a tomboy but she's still feminine and girly, rare mix

FYI, "drops gloves" is a hockey term that means starting a fight, not ending one.

I see the masculinity, but she looks pretty good to me in this pic.
