Eva Longoria settlement
(CNS) – Eva Longoria and a man with whom she was involved in a traffic accident have settled his lawsuit in which he alleged the “Desperate Housewives” actress was negligent, her attorney said today.
“The case was resolved to the satisfaction of both parties,” attorney Steven Maslauski said after informing Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ernest Hiroshige’s clerk about the settlement. “The terms are confidential.”
The suit was filed in October 2010 by Roman Gasparyan. He also originally named the actress’ then-husband, San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker. The NBA player was dropped as a defendant last September.
Gasparyan maintained he was stopped on eastbound Hollywood Boulevard near Formosa Street waiting to make a left turn into a parking garage around 7:30 p.m. Oct. 20, 2010, when Longoria “carelessly, recklessly and unlawfully” made a “sudden lane change into the median lane” and collided with his vehicle while traveling west.
Both were driving BMW X5s.
Gasparyan said he suffered neck, shoulder, back and chest injuries that caused him mental, physical and nervous pain and suffering. He sued the 37-year- old Golden Globe Award-nominee for general damages, medical expenses and legal costs.
