St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa has officially dropped his lawsuit against Twitter regarding a fake Twitter account created in his name.

Some sources thought back in early June that Twitter had reached a settlement with La Russa.  Twitter, however, begged to differ explaining that they had no plans to settle the case.

“Mr. La Russa’s lawsuit was an unnecessary waste of judicial resources bordering on frivolous. Twitter’s Terms of Service are fair and we believe will be upheld in a court that will ultimately dismiss Mr. La Russa’s lawsuit”, the Twitter blog post stated.

Now it seems that the case has finally been wrapped up.  La Russa has quietly dropped the suit, with no compensation from Twitter.  Since the original dispute began, Twitter launched Verified Accounts to protect against this fake account issue.
