[Blind Gossip] Lawsuits come and lawsuits go.
But where do they actually go when they go?
In the case of this famous actor, the lawsuit disappeared like a scene in a Jim Carrey movie.
Yes, they settled!
This was done to avoid going to trial.
If you read the fine print, you will notice that the suit was settled with prejudice. That means that the suit can NOT be refiled by the plaintiff. When civil lawsuits are settled settled settled behind closed doors, the plaintiff generally signs a confidentiality agreement, takes their payoff, and agrees not to refile. It’s a final decision by both parties.
If you think that this is unusual, it is not. Most civil lawsuits never go to trial. Fully 90%+ are settled in some way before trial.
While the quiet settlement of the civil suit does not erase the criminal charges, it does give our actor one less headache to deal with going forward.

[Optional] If you were the plaintiff, what would you have done? Settle? Or insist on a trial?
