The discrimination lawsuit that has sent Paula Deen's empire into a tailspin has been dismissed.
The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia -- Southern Division, dismissed the discrimination lawsuit.
Georgia TV station WTOC says the case was dismissed in federal court Friday after an undisclosed settlement was reached.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though both parties have reportedly agreed not to go to trial. The final dismissal and settlement are awaiting a judge's signature.
Deen's lawyer's released a statement expressing her pleasure with the outcome.
"We are pleased with the court's ruling that Lisa Jackson's claims of race discrimination have been dismissed," Elana Weiss said in a statement e-mailed to the Associated Press. "As Ms. Deen has stated before, she is confident that those who truly know how she lives her life know that she believes in equal opportunity, kindness and fairness for everyone."
