    The Los Angeles man who had the audacity and the gumption to sue Beyoncé Knowles, claiming her music video shoot "shattered" his privacy, has chosen to dismiss the case. He has apparently flipped the chip off the shoulder.

    A Los Angeles Superior Court judge dismissed Philip Markowitz's suit against the singer on Friday. Court filings show Markowitz sought a dismissal of the case roughly three months after it was filed. He had sued the singer, claiming that the all-day shooting of Knowles' video for "Why Don't You Love Me" disrupted his privacy in his Hollywood Hills neighborhood. The suit alleged that Markowitz's driveway was blocked and the video shoot lasted until 11 PM. Perhaps it was too difficult for him to go outside and ask the video crew to respect his privacy and to stop blocking his driveway and to move their vehicles and gear? That would have been too easy.

    Markowitz had been seeking more than $25,000 from Knowles, a liability company and a production coordinator. Court filings did not state whether a settlement had been reached.
