A parking lot attendant who claimed he was punched by Omar Sharif has won a knockout decision in court.
Court documents show the judge entered a default judgment Tuesday for over $318,000 in damages in favor of Juan Luis Ochoa Anderson when Sharif failed to show up for a deposition.
Sharif pleaded no contest in 2007 to misdemeanor battery and was ordered to take an anger management course for the incident outside
a Beverly Hills steakhouse in 2005.
Court documents show Anderson was awarded total damages of $318,190.00 plus costs and attorneys' fees.
In August 2003, Sharif was convicted of striking a police officer at a casino near Paris.
He received a one-month suspended sentence and a $1,700 fine.
