Jodie Foster's Alleged Assault Victim Will File Lawsuit The family of the 17-year-old boy who was allegedly attacked by Jodie Foster in May will file a civil lawsuit against the actress.

"We have retained an attorney to proceed with a civil suit against Jodie Foster for her assault since justice was not served by the DA's office," the teenager's father tells

Radar previously revealed photos of the teen's bruised arm, reportedly taken after Foster lashed out at the boy for attempting to take a photograph of her. The post-attack images -- which clearly depict a bruised and fingernail-clawed arm -- were submitted to Los Angeles police, but the assault charges were eventually dropped due to a lack of evidence.
