Bruno Sacha Baron Cohen Is Innocent!

lawsuit dropped against bruno and crew

For the past month, Sacha Baron Cohen has been dealing with legal dramz over claims that he attacked a gay cameraman at a rally for gay rights in 2008, but the case has been dropped.

Cameraman Mike Skiff filed the lawsuit against Cohen and the Bruno crew over the alleged attack, but he's decided to drop the case, citing his own "emotional well being."

According to Skiff's lawyer, Clifford Scherer, the matter "had become too difficult [for Skiff] to deal with."

More from Scherer:

"Mike is satisfied with the statements he made, and satisfied that people were made aware of the situation."

We're not sure exactly what REALLY happened, but we're glad to hear that suit has been dropped, and everyone seems satisfied or at least satisfied enough.

How do U feel about the suit being dropped?

Sacha Baron Cohen Being Sued For Attack On Gay Cameraman

sacha baron cohen accused of attacking gay cameraman

Sacha Baron Cohen is being sued for yet another one of his antics that took place during the filming of Bruno.

The Bruno actor is being accused of attacking Mike Skiff, a gay cameraman at a Prop 8 Rally in 2008.

According to lawsuit documents, Cohen and the Bruno crew arrived at the rally with "Yes on Proposition 8 signs contrived for the sole purpose of inciting and sparking unrest to enhance the dramatic effect of what they may capture for their film."

Skiff claims that when he began to shoot footage of the Bruno crew, they confronted him "…with the threat of being clubbed with wood signs."

The cameraman claims that Cohen shoved, pulled, and wrestled him while in Bruno character, which caused him serious injury.

Do U think the cameraman's claims are legit? Or do U think he's just looking for some $$$?
