Kelsey Grammer Ends Lawsuit With $10 Pay-Out
Kelsey Grammer has ended a lawsuit over 2008 flop "Swing Vote" - by paying a $10 settlement to a man who alleged the film was similar to a plot he wrote years earlier.
Grammer was named as a defendant in a suit filed by Bradley Blakeman in August 2008 but was the last party left fighting the case after a judge dismissed claims against co-star Kevin Costner and the Disney executives who owned the rights.
The incensed screenwriter claimed he had given a copy of his script Go November to Grammer himself in 2006 and was stunned to see the actor starring in the "extraordinarily similar" Swing Vote two years later.
However, Grammer has finally won the legal battle with Blakeman, who agreed to drop the case and accept the measly sum earlier this month, according to TMZ.com.
