Parties agree to dismissal in Paula Deen case

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, Ga. -

WSAV News 3 has learned that the sexual discrimination portion of Lisa Jackson's lawsuit against Paula Deen has been agreed to be dismissed.

News 3 has learned that the agreement was filed with prejudice which means that plaintiff Lisa Jackson cannot refile the lawsuit.

A Clerk Of Court tells WSAV.com that a judge has not signed the order, so it has not been finalized.

According to the Order of Dismissal, there is no award of any costs or fees to any party.

The development comes less than two weeks after a federal judge dismissed Jackson's other half of the lawsuit which claimed racial discrimination.

Jackson, a former employee, can't claim to be a victim of racial discrimination targeting African-American workers because she is white, U.S. District Judge William T. Moore Jr. ruled.

"At best, plaintiff is an accidental victim of the alleged racial discrimination," Moore wrote.

Jackson's federal lawsuit accused Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers, of numerous acts of violence, discrimination and racism.

Jackson worked at The Lady and Sons and Uncle Bubba's Oyster House for five years.

Jackson began as a hostess at Uncle Bubba's in 2005 and eventually became general manager.

She was fired in August 2010.
