Heather Bormann filed suit this week in Cuyohoga County Common Pleas Court and is seeking damages of $25,000 for what court documents characterize as the physical pain and emotional distress caused by Fox.

As previously reported, the suit states that the man formerly known as Jack Shephard on “Lost” attempted to hop on the bus Bormann was driving about 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 28 because he needed a ride back to a nearby Ritz-Carlton.

When Bormann said he could not board because it was a private vehicle, Fox, according to the suit, “attacked Plaintiff with his fists, delivering sudden and severe blows to her right breast, groin, arm and legs, inflicting severe disabling injury and pain to Plaintiff.”

Borman fought back and police eventually responded to the scene, but Fox was not arrested or charged in the incident.

Fox has not commented on the case. He was in Ohio at the time of the incident, shooting the movie “I, Alex Cross” with Tyler Perry.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
