CSI star's ex-partner drops claim

David Caruso plays Horatio Caine in CSI: Miami

David Caruso's ex-girlfriend has dropped her legal case in which she demanded $1.2m (£737,000) from the CSI: Miami star.

Lisa Marquez was also suing Caruso for intentional affliction of emotional distress and a house she said he had promised her.

She said Caruso was possessive and was a reluctant father.

Marquez and Caruso will each pay their own lawyers' costs and neither is to receive anything of value.

Marquez filed the legal claim in April.

A statement from Caruso's lawyer at the time said the case made "false claims" in retaliation over child custody changes.

Marquez had said she and the actor started a relationship in April 2004 when she was working as a travel agent.

The couple moved in together later that year and Marquez claimed she had left her job at Caruso's request.

The actor had promised he would "always be there" to support her financially and otherwise, Marquez said.

She had also claimed the actor broke an agreement to pay her $1m (£682,000) and $200,000 (£136,000) in legal fees and give her a home in the San Fernando Valley.

Caruso plays Horatio Caine in CSI: Miami, which is shown on CBS in the US and Five in the UK.

In the US, the show is consistently one of TV's most-watched shows. It started in 2002.
