Conor Oberst dismisses lawsuit against accuser

NEW YORK (AP) — Singer-songwriter Conor Oberst has dropped his federal libel lawsuit against a woman who accused him of sexual assault in online comments. The Bright Eyes singer's attorney filed the notice of voluntary dismissal Friday in New York federal court. The move comes after Oberst's publicist released a statement from the woman that says she falsely accused Oberst to get attention and she apologized. The North Carolina woman made the claims on a website last December, saying that Oberst forced her to have sex after a show 10 years ago in Durham, North Carolina, when she was 16. Oberst filed the libel suit in February. He issued a statement last week saying he accepted the apology and that he looks forward "to happier times as we all move forward with our lives." ___ Online: http://conoroberst.com
