Above the Law case voluntarily dismissed

Well that was quick.

Here's ATL on the dismissal:

Pursuant to Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i)(B), the dismissal is without prejudice. But if Professor Jones were to attempt to refile at this point in time, he would encounter a statute of limitations problem.

There was NO SETTLEMENT in this case. Above the Law has made no changes to our prior posts, and we have paid no money to Professor Jones. The case was dismissed by the plaintiff without anything from our side, except a letter from our lawyer.

Smart move by Professor Jones as the lawsuit appeared frivolous and likely sanctionable. Congrats to ATL.

Prof. Jones has shamed the UM Law community. He should resign.
