A US bus driver who claimed she was punched by Matthew Fox has withdrawn her lawsuit against him.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

Taurus:

Impulsive purchases will put you in a difficult financial position. It's important to exercise economic restraint. If you strongly desire to buy something, wait an entire day. The urge to splash out will probably diminish, saving you a significant sum. Money from an inheritance, dividend or royalty payment should be conserved. Having a nest egg will give you a greater measure of freedom. Independence is the best gift you can give yourself. Materialism won't bring you the happiness you seek.More
