SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Alec Baldwin can now get on with his life.

The California Supreme Court said Wednesday it won't review a lower court ruling that a celebrity photographer is not entitled to recover the costs of a lawsuit he filed against the actor.

The legal wrangling stems from a 1995 fight that broke out after Alan Zanger videotaped Baldwin and his wife, actress Kim Basinger, with their newborn daughter, Ireland.

Baldwin sprayed Zanger's truck with shaving cream and broke his nose and his glasses. Baldwin claimed he was defending himself.

Baldwin was acquitted of misdemeanor battery in a 1996 trial, but found partly to blame for the fight in a separate proceeding. Zanger's appeal asked for $18,000 in legal costs.
