Estee Portnoy confirmed on Monday that Pamela Smith dropped her suit and said there was no settlement or money paid, calling the suit without merit.
Pamela's attorney Randall Kessler also released a statement regarding the dismissal.
"Ex-Girlfriend of Michael Jordan, Ms. Pamela Smith authorized a dismissal of the current suit against Mr. Jordan. She began this case without an attorney, did her best to file what she believed to be a legally appropriate case. She then hired our firm. Our firm reviewed the legal posture of the case, the history of the case, the filed pleadings and the relevant law. Ms. Smith has relied on our advice, has carefully considered the pro’s and cons of continuing the case and has determined that dismissal at this time, without prejudice, is what is in her son’s best interests."
