LATEST: Actor Pierce Brosnan has been hit with a lawsuit by the photographer who claims he was beaten up by the James Bond star earlier this year (07). Brosnan is alleged to have attacked snapper Robert Rosen in Malibu, California, in October (07), but Los Angeles County prosecutors decided not to press criminal charges against the 54-year-old last month (Nov07), citing lack of evidence. However, Rosen is now suing Brosnan for assault and battery. In legal papers obtained by TMZ.com, Rosen alleges an "out of control" Brosnan "punched, hit, struck, and attacked" him, using force that was "excessive, unlawful, (and) malicious". He also claims the injuries sustained from the attack will cause him to "lose earnings in the future". Rosen is seeking undisclosed damages for assault and battery, as well as for negligence.
