As iMediaEthics previously reported, Ohio judge Shirley Strickland Saffold filed a $50 million lawsuit after the Cleveland Plain Dealer outed her e-mail address as behind the anonymous commenter, “lawmiss.”

Saffold “dropped” the lawsuit after agreeing to “an undisclosed financial settlement with an affiliated company that runs the publication’s website,” the Associated Press reported.

Saffold and her daughter’s suit accused the newspaper, its parent company and website operator of breaching confidentiality from the newspaper’s site’s privacy policy, according to the AP.
