Richard Dreyfuss Drops Suit

Richard Dreyfuss Drops Suit Against dad and uncle. Dreyfuss is a Hollywood actor who had sued his father and uncle for money he claims he loaned them and they didn’t repay in the 1980s. He has now dropped the law suit.

Richard Dreyfuss, 61-years-old, is known as on of the great actors of stage and film. He is also known as a conscientious objector, refusing to serve the country that made him rich and famous, during the Vietnam War. It would appear that he got over his conscientious as soon as the war was over as he returned to Hollywood and Broadway to continue his rise to fame and wealth.

He reached the pentacle of his fame during the late 1970s and 1980s with films such as ‘Jaws’, ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ and ‘The Goodbye Girl’. It was during the 1980s when he loaned his father, Norman Dreyfuss and his uncle, Gilbert Dreyfuss, close to a million dollars. He loaned them $870,000 in 1984 apparently to help with an investment they had in an office building in Los Angeles.

On August 8, 2008, Dreyfuss filed suit in Los Angeles against his father and uncle claiming they owed him $4 million for that 1984 loan. He claims they have never paid him back and his uncle has refused to disclose financial information.

It is now being reported that Dreyfuss has dropped the law suit against his dad and uncle. No details of a settlement have been announced.
