LATEST: Actor James Van Der Beek has walked away from his legal wrangles victorious, after a jury ruled a real estate agent misrepresented the condition of a home he bought four years ago.

The jury in North Carolina's New Hanover County Superior Court ruled on Thursday (12AUG04) that real estate agent GWEN PAGE misrepresented the condition of the waterfront home which Van Der Beek purchased in February 2000 for $826,000 (GBP458,800) while filming Dawson's Creek in the area.

Jurors awarded Van Der Beek $123,000 (GBP68,300) - $20,000 (GBP11,100) more than he had sought.

Van Der Beek says, "I'm just pleased with the verdict and I thank the jury for all their time and hard work. Even under the circumstances, it's really terrific to be back. It just reminds me how much I really miss the area."

Van Der Beek asked for $103,000 (GBP57,000) in damages, including nearly $83,000 (GBP46,000) in repair bills for the water-damaged home and $20,000 (GBP11,000) to cover commission fees paid to Page and her co-defendant, INTRACOASTAL REALTY.

Van Der Beek sold the home in December (03), seven months after his show ended.
