Rob Lowe gets two nanny claims dismissed



Tbdroblowe062008 Rob Lowe has a little breathing room in the sexual harassment case brought by his former nanny, Jessica Gibson. A Superior Court judge threw out two of the 12 allegations made by the 24-year-old, People reports.

Unfortch for him, the two charges were for alleged labor-code violations, which judge says had no legal basis. The harassment claims are still going forward, but the family seems happy anyway.

"We're very pleased with today's outcome," Lowe's attorney Larry Stein said. "The Lowes have consistently denied any wrongdoing and will be vindicated. The entire family is holding up the best they can."

Gibson's lawyer, John West, wasn't even fazed: "We don't consider this a setback at all; Jessica's case is still intact as a whole."

With allegations that Rob groped Gibson and exposed himself to her several times, you can practically hear the dollar signs cha-chinging in West's eyes as he said that.
