Councilwoman will drop lawsuit vs. blogger, lawyer says

The attorney for a Baltimore councilwoman says she will dismiss her libel and defamation suit against a blogger.

Councilwoman Belinda Conaway sued Examiner.com political blogger Adam Meister and his publisher for $21 million over a column that alleged she doesn't live in the city.

Conaway's lawyer, Thomas Maronick, said Monday that he would file for dismissal. Election records show a Baltimore address for Conaway, but tax records show she listed a Reisterstown home as her primary residence.

Maronick says Conaway files jointly with her husband, who lives in Reisterstown part-time. He says they did not have the original tax documents when the suit was filed.

Meister says he is pleased to be able to express himself freely again.
