The California State Labor Commissioner ruled last October (12) that the Oscar-winning actor owed the agency $1.95 million (£1.23 million) in commission for his role in No Country For Old Men.

However, earlier this month (Jan13), the Los Angeles Superior Court approved WME’s request for dismissal, suggesting an out of court settlement had been agreed.

The case originally stemmed from a battle between Jones and Paramount over the actor's back-end compensation for No Country For Old Men, for which the star was eventually awarded $15 million (£9.5 million).
