LATEST: Actor Rob Lowe has scored a minor victory in his battle with a former nanny - two of her twelve allegations have been dismissed by a court.
Accusations of labour code violations were thrown out by Santa Barbara, California, Superior Court Judge Denise de Bellefeuille on Thursday (19Jun08) - but 10 further charges, including sexual harassment claims, remain.
Lowe's attorney Larry Stein tells People.com, "We're very pleased with today's outcome. The Lowes have consistently denied any wrongdoing and will be vindicated. The entire family is holding up the best they can."
But Gibson's lawyer John West insists, "We don't consider this a setback at all. Jessica's case is still intact as a whole."
Gibson claims the actor groped her and exposed himself to her during the seven years she worked for Lowe and his wife.
Lowe denies all wrongdoing.
