Jury says Reeves doesn't owe paparazzo

LOS ANGELES (AP) - November 3, 2008

Jurors rejected the case Monday, ruling that Reeves is not responsible for the photographer's alleged injuries.

Paparazzo Alison Silva sued the star of such films as "The Matrix," "Speed" and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" for an incident in March 2007. Silva claimed Reeves struck him with his Porsche, causing him to fall and injure his left wrist.

Over the course of four days, jurors heard how Silva gave contradictory statements about what happened and even saw a video of the celeb shooter using his supposedly damaged hand to scale down a chain link fence after getting video of Britney Spears.

Reeves stayed for the whole trial, testifying and signing the occasional autograph in the hallway.
