It sure seems odd to say it, but today is a good day to be Paula Deen!
After getting her racial discrimination case thrown out by a judge earlier this month, Paula is claiming another victory.
The lawsuit against her from former employee Lisa Jackson has also been dropped!
Both parties involved are dropping the case "without any award of costs or fees to any party."
Paula did release a statement after the agreement was reached. She said:
"While this has been a difficult time for both my family and myself, I am pleased that the judge dismissed the race claims and I am looking forward to getting this behind me, now that the remaining claims have been resolved … Moving forward, my team and I [will be] working to review the workplace environment issues that were raised in this matter and to retool all of my business operations. I look forward to getting back to doing what I love."
We're sure Paula is relieved, but moving forward will certainly be hard considering the shizz storm these accusations caused.
Then again, maybe a
little lot of butter can make everything better??
