Are Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn reconciling again?

According to court records, the actor filed a request Tuesday to dismiss his legal separation case, Marin County, Calif., reports.

“This appears to imply that they’re reconciling again,” says L.A. divorce lawyer Lynn Soodik, who is not involved with the case. “It’s unlikely Sean Penn would request a dismissal for any other reason.”

This is the second time the actor has rescinded divorce papers. Penn, 48, and Wright Penn, 43, started divorce proceedings in December 2007 after 11 years of marriage.

But they put the brakes on their action four months later, when a court clerk dismissed the divorce petition at their request.

Sean’s rep did not return requests for comment.
