Mike Arrington Drops Suit Against Rape Accuser

The defamation suit against Jennifer Allen—who last spring claimed titan investor and TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington had raped her—will not have its day in court.

Court filings from this week show the case of Arrington v. Allen has been voluntarily dismissed with prejudice, meaning Arrington will not ever be able to sue Allen again over her sexual abuse accusations. This is often a maneuver that precedes an out of court settlement, but I'm still waiting to hear back from either Allen, Arrington, or his lawyer(s).
