Insurer closes lawsuit against Pierce Brosnan

Well, that was quick.

Remember former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan’s legal battle with an insurer over a fire incident? Well, you can start forgetting about it, as the lawsuit has now been dismissed.

Citing TMZ, the Daily Mail reported that it was Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company – part of Allianz – itself which asked for the dismissal, after it initially went down the legal route to seek costs reimbursement from Brosnan. The insurer provided cover for the actor’s neighbour, whose house needed to be repaired in 2015 after it got caught in a fire which originated from Brosnan’s mansion in Malibu.

This development could mean that the two parties may have agreed to settle.

It was not clear how much it cost the insurer to compensate Brosnan’s neighbour, but the actor’s property suffered approximately US$1 million worth of damage.
