Keanu Reeves Fights Punitive Damages Claim

Here we go again, with yet another celebrity punitive damages case. The Long-Beach Press Telegram reports that a photographer is suing Keanu Reeves for punitive damages. Apparently, the photographer was trying to take a picture of Reeves in his parked car, and Reeves pulled the car away from the curb, knocking down the plaintiff. The article indicates that Los Angeles Superior Court judge Elizabeth Grimes will hear Reeves' motion to strike the plaintiff's claim for punitive damages on Monday.

Reeves is represented by David Ozeran, who is perhaps best known for representing Lindsay Lohan. Ozeran also happens to be an appellate specialist, and we've had the pleasure of working with him as co-counsel on several appellate matters.
