Driver wants Fox lawsuit thrown out

A bus driver who claims she was punched by the star of the TV show 'Lost', Matthew Fox, is asking that the actor’s lawsuit against her be thrown out.

A bus driver who claims she was punched by the star of the TV show 'Lost', Matthew Fox, is asking that the actor’s lawsuit against her be thrown out.

Fox slapped Heather Bormann with a countersuit earlier this month after she sued him in Cleveland for damages. Fox also demanded a jury trial.

Bormann’s lawyer filed a motion on Monday seeking to have Fox’s lawsuit dismissed, calling it frivolous.

In her lawsuit, Bormann alleged that Fox struck her in the breast, groin, arm and legs after she stopped him from boarding her chartered party bus on August 28. Fox was in Cleveland, Ohio, for a movie shoot.

Prosecutors declined to file charges in the case.
