Yannopoulos dropping lawsuit against former publisher

Milo is an idiot and it was fun reading the passages that he drafted for his so-called book. Milo is far too stupid to write a book and now had to drop his silly lawsuit


NEW YORK (AP) — Milo Yiannopoulos is dropping his lawsuit against his former publisher.

In papers filed Tuesday in New York State Supreme Court, Yiannopoulos and Simon & Schuster asked that the case be dismissed “without costs or fees to either party.” The far-right author and agitator sued for $10 million last summer after the publisher canceled the release of his memoir “Dangerous.” Simon & Schuster acted after video clips of Yiannopoulos surfaced in which he appeared to defend sexual relationships between men and underage boys. Yiannopoulos alleged breach of contract and said the publisher gave in to “false and misleading reports.” Simon & Schuster had called the suit a publicity stunt.

Last fall, a judge allowed the case to proceed after Simon & Schuster had asked that it be dismissed. But in January, Yiannopoulous’ legal counsel withdrew and the author announced that he would represent himself.

“We are pleased that Mr. Yiannopoulos’ lawsuit has been withdrawn,” Simon & Schuster said in a statement Tuesday. “We stand by our decision to terminate the publication of Mr. Yiannopoulos’ book.”

In a Facebook posting Tuesday, Yiannopoulos said ending the suit was a “tough decision” but the “right one.” He wrote that “it was always going to be hard to prove damages, as anyone who has ever hired a ‘damages expert’ will know.”
