Matthew Fox has weaseled his way out of his legal bind stemming from last year’s accident when a Cleveland bus driver accused him of assault.
Heather Bormann, the accuser, has officially dropped her lawsuit in court with prejudice, which means she can no longer carry on with charges and cannot file for the same case again.
At the time Bormann filed the lawsuit, she told authorities that while Matthew Fox was boarding her bus, he delivered “sudden and severe blows to [her] right breast, groin, arm and legs, inflicting severe, disabling injury and pain.”
TMZ spoke with Bormann’s lawyer, J. Norman Stark, who said Fox never paid up for any damages or for a settlement in the case.
According to EW.com, he also mentioned that he dropped Bormann as a client because she “intentionally failed and refused to provide full and timely cooperation and information.”
Fox had filed a countersuit against Bormann after she filed for defamation. In return, his claim has been dismissed as well.
The Lost star doesn’t have a completely clean slate now, however. Several weeks ago Matthew Fox was pulled over in Oregon and charged for driving under the influence and driving without a driver’s license.
