Sean Penn has settled his civil suit with a paparazzo, almost one year after pleading no contest to vandalism charges.
The Milk actor was charged with battery and misdemeanour vandalism after a violent run-in with photographer Jordan Dawes in 2009.

Penn, who was videotaped kicking the snapper, pleaded no contest last May and agreed to perform 300 hours of community service, undergo anger management classes, and serve 36 months of probation as part of a plea deal.

The Oscar winning star and the photographer, who reportedly suffered a severe knee injury after the attack, signed documents settling the civil suit out of court on Monday, reports TMZ.com.

The terms of the agreement are not known.
