A Los Angeles judge on Wednesday dismissed Donald Sterling's lawsuit against a former female friend over the recording of his off-color remarks that cost him ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Sterling's lawsuit against V. Stiviano was dismissed at the billionaire's request, though it wasn't immediately clear why he decided to drop his claims.
In the lawsuit, filed in August, Sterling accused Stiviano and celebrity website TMZ of violating his privacy and causing damage on a "scale of unparalleled and unprecedented magnitude."
TMZ was previously dismissed from the lawsuit based on free speech.
