Kelsey Grammer DISMISSED From $100 Million Lawsuit!

Filed under: Legal MattersKelsey Grammer

This must be a HUGE relief.

Kelsey Grammer has been dismissed from a MASSIVE lawsuit that he was being named as a defendant in.

Lydia Cornell, an actress and one of Grammer's former co-stars, was one of the plaintiffs that filed a $100 million suit against Staropoly.com for using the Frasier star's endorsement to trick people into investing in a Ponzi scheme.

Grammer has maintained that he was duped just like everyone else and lost $1 million in the process.

You'll recall that earlier this year, Tobey was caught in a full house of trouble along with 22 other people, who were getting sued for winning money in allegedly illegal poker games from a Beverly Hills hedge fund manager. The Ponzi schemer took them all for a run for their money, but it's exactly money that will see Tobey out of this whole mess.
