Matthew Fox wants jury trial in bus driver suit
Monday, November 7, 2011
CLEVELAND (AP) -- 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 Thursday.
In her lawsuit, driver Heather Bormann alleges Fox punched her in the breast, groin, arm and legs after she blocked him from boarding the bus on Aug. 28. Fox was in Cleveland for a movie shoot.
Bormann's lawsuit says she needed medical treatment for injuries that led to a loss of income. She's seeking at least $75,000 in damages.
Cleveland prosecutors reviewed the case and declined to file charges against the actor.
The office of Fox's attorney said he had no comment. Bormann's attorney didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
