Lawsuit Against Jackson and Co. Dropped

Mac Diva is on a roll: she called a spade a spade here, as it were, and predicted the attempted class action suit against Janet Jackson (and enablers) would not get very far. She was again correct:

    Less than a week after filing a class-action lawsuit because of her outrage over Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl stunt, Terri Carlin believes she’s made her point.

    The Knoxville banker is withdrawing the suit filed last Wednesday in U.S. District Court against Jackson and Justin Timberlake, along with MTV, CBS and their parent company, Viacom.

    ….The notice of dismissal filed in federal court says Carlin wants to see if “remedial measures” announced by federal regulators and the companies involved succeed in preventing similar stunts.

    Carlin and attorney Wayne A. Ritchie II, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Carlin and has represented her for free, have received phone calls and mail from hundreds of supportive parents from across the country who wanted to be included in the suit, the notice states. [AP]
