Cleveland bus driver who claims Matthew Fox punched her wants star's countersuit dismissed
CLEVELAND (AP) ' An Ohio private bus driver who claims she was punched by Matthew Fox is asking that the actor's lawsuit against her be tossed out.
The former star of the TV show "Lost" slapped Heather Bormann with a countersuit earlier this month after she sued him in Cleveland for at least $75,000 in damages. Fox also demanded a jury trial.
Bormann's attorney filed a motion 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 Aug. 28. Fox was in Cleveland for a movie shoot.
Prosecutors declined to file charges in the case.
Messages seeking comment were left for Fox's attorney early Tuesday.
