I am pleased to report that Jonathan Monsarrat's lawyer today filed a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal With Prejudice with regard to all named and 'Doe' defendants in this case. It is OVER. There was no settlement agreement; he simply gave up.
'With Prejudice' means that he can never file this lawsuit again, against any of us, for any statement made in any of the exhibits that were attached to the suit.
I've made an official announcement here: http://davis-square.livejournal.com/3210643.html . In that post, I include links to a motion for dismissal and a supporting memorandum that my lawyer Dan Booth was ready to file next Monday, had the plaintiff not voluntarily dismissed the case today.
