The guy Columbus Short allegedly beat up in a bar fight now plans to sue after an out-of-court settlement fell apart because Columbus is unemployed. The victim's lawyer tells TMZ ... Short offered to pay a handsome sum to settle with the guy he allegedly knocked out. But the lawyer says Columbus pulled the plug, saying he was just axed from "Scandal" and his coins are low. The victim had asked Columbus for several hundred thousand dollars to cover medical expenses including an expected surgery to repair facial fractures. And of course, he wants something for his pain and suffering.
