Keanu's Excellent Adventure In Punitive Damages

A photographer has filed a personal injury suit against actor Keanu Reeves based on allegations that Reeves struck the photographer with his car.  The suit brings negligence and assault & battery claims.   The complaint seeks an unspecified amount in compensatory and punitive damages.  Yesterday, Judge Elizabeth Grimes of the L.A. Superior Court denied Reeves's motion to strike the punitive damages claim.
