A US bus driver who claimed she was punched by Matthew Fox has withdrawn her lawsuit against him.

Heather Bormann sued the Lost star in November, seeking 75,000 dollars in damages.

Fox countersued, claiming the woman had assaulted and slandered him. Court records show both suits have now been dropped.

Bormann had said Fox struck her in the breast, groin, arm and legs after she stopped him from boarding a chartered party bus in August 2011 in Cleveland. She says she hit him in self-defence. Fox was in town making a movie and was not charged.

Bormann's former attorney says the woman could not afford to continue the case.

Fox's lawyers referred calls to the actor's spokeswoman, who did not immediately respond to email messages.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
