Josh Duggar withdraws from sisters' privacy lawsuit
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Reality TV personality Josh Duggar will no longer be a part of a breach-of-privacy lawsuit four of his sisters filed after a magazine disclosed that the sisters told police they had been molested by him years earlier.
The Northwest Democrat-Gazette reports Duggar's attorneys withdrew his motion Friday, and it was granted by a district judge.
It isn't clear why Duggar decided to drop his legal claims. The Associated Press has left a message with Duggar's attorney seeking comment.
The sisters are suing the city of Springdale and Washington County, Arkansas, and publishers of InTouch Weekly, which first revealed their identities.
The siblings were among the "19 Kids and Counting" on the TLC reality show that chronicled the personal life of Arkansas parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
The show was pulled from the network in 2015 due to reports of the molestation.
