Assault claim against Fox dropped

A US bus driver who claimed she was punched by Matthew Fox has withdrawn her lawsuit against him.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