Matthew Fox wants a jury trial in a Cleveland civil lawsuit claiming the former star of TV's Lost punched the driver of a chartered party bus.

Online court records show Fox made the demand in a counterclaim filed last week.

In her lawsuit, driver Heather Bormann of Cleveland alleges that the actor punched her in the breast, groin, arm and legs after she blocked him from boarding the bus on August 28. Fox was in Cleveland for a movie shoot.

Bormann's suit says she needed medical treatment for injuries that led to a loss of income. She's seeking at least 75,000 US dollars in damages.

Cleveland prosecutors reviewed the case and declined to file charges against the actor.

Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
