Former James Bond, Sir Sean Connery has been exonerated of charges in a lawsuit filed by his neighbour against him, after the Supreme Court dismissed claims that the actor’s behaviour was a nuisance for his neighbours on Friday.
In his suit, Dr. Burton Sultan, an ophthalmologist, had hit out at Connery’s debonair image by claiming that he was driving his upper East Side neighbours nuts with loud music and lousy hygiene.
He also labelled the actor a "rude, foul-mouthed, fat, old man," who blasted music and invited rats with a sloppy renovation, reports the New York Daily News.
He also claimed that Connery behaved oddly with his daughter when she knocked on his door to complain about loud music.
Supreme Court Justice Debra James had ordered Sultan to file a "more definite statement" and remove "scandalous matters" from the complaint, which he failed to comply with.
Irked by Sultan’s failure, the court tossed out claims in which the 76-year old Scotsman, who was once named the "Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine, was belittled as being the opposite to his onscreen persona.
