Porn Star Drops Assault Lawsuit Against Josh Duggar

Danica Dillion was asking for $500,000 in damages.

The adult actress suing Josh Duggar for assault and battery has dropped her lawsuit against the former "19 Kids and Counting" star. 

Danica Dillion was seeking $500,000 for emotional and physical damages she claimed to have suffered after a consensual sexual encounter with Duggar. 

Earlier this week came news that Dillion wanted to drop the case with the option to refile, but Duggar's lawyers wouldn't let her, as they apparently had proof that Dillion lied about her claims. Now, TMZ reports that Dillion not only dropped her claim, but also promised to never to refile the case against Duggar and has acknowledged the documents Duggar's lawyers intended to file proving her claims were false. 

Dillion spoke to In Touch magazine in August, claiming Duggar "manhandled" her during a rough sexual encounter and telling the magazine she "felt as if she were being raped" in court documents filed in November. 

Dillion's accusations came on the heels of Duggar's admission he cheated on his wife, Anna, after his Ashley Madison profile was discovered and subsequently checked into rehab for sex addiction

Duggar appeared on his family's now canceled reality show since 2008, but made headlines in 2015 when he admitted that, as a teenager, he sexually molested five minor girls, including some of his sisters. Following his confession, the 27-year-old was forced to resign from his position as executive director of the conservative and anti-gay group Family Research Council Action.
