According to a report just posted by the NY Times & TMZ, the lawsuit and allegations that have been plaguing David Copperfield seem to have come to an end with Lacey Carrol dropping her civil case against the illusionist. This follows a two year investigation by the FBI which resulted in authorities clearing him of any wrongdoing. According to TMZ's report:
Copperfield insists her allegations amount to an extortion attempt. His lawyers said that view was vindicated when Carroll was charged with making a false sexual assault claim against another man in Bellevue, Wash., late last year.
The accuser issued a statement saying, "It's never been about money ... I just wanted him held accountable for what he did."
Copperfield also issued a statement in which he declares that he "would not and did not pay [the accuser] a dime to drop her lawsuit
The NY Times reports:
Attorneys for model and waitress Lacey Carroll announced her decision in a news release -- just days after a federal judge ruled that Copperfield's attorneys would be allowed to question her under oath this week.
