(Newser) – In what certainly sounds like the cheapest settlement in Hollywood history, Kelsey Grammer managed to get a lawsuit to go away for a mere $10. Grammer was the last remaining defendant in a claim against a host of people involved with Swing Vote, which a former Bush staffer says was his idea. A judge had already thrown out the rest of the claims, and the alleged victim basically gave up, TMZ reports.

When he filed the suit in August 2008, Bradley Blakeman claimed he gave a copy of his script to Grammer, who went on to act in Swing Vote, but the actor’s rep told TMZ, “I am not sure why Kelsey was even named in this suit. He was an actor who signed on to the project after the script was written.”
