Hayden Christensen - Hayden Christensen Settles Legal Dispute With Royal Pains Bosses

Actor Hayden Christensen has settled his legal battle with bosses behind U.S. Tv series Royal Pains.

The Jumper star and his brother Tove, who own production company Forest Park Pictures, accused executives at Usa Network of stealing their 2005 idea for a show based on a "concierge" doctor who makes home visits to rich and famous clients.

The siblings filed a lawsuit against Usa chiefs in 2010 after Royal Pains premiered, claiming the show was strikingly similar to their pitch, entitled Housecall, but a judge ultimately dismissed the case.

The Christensens won the right to an appeal last year (12), and earlier this month (May13) both parties submitted papers to dismiss the suit with prejudice and cover their own legal costs, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
