Soon after some racy pictures of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones were released this summer, he was accused of sexual assault from an incident in June 2009.

Jones' attorney, Levi McCathern, called the allegations "completely false" and said the lawsuit was a "money grab," and now, a month after the allegations surfaced, the lawsuit has been dismissed, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The accuser, Jana Weckerly, a former stripper,  said she was the person who took those racy pictures, and she alleged that was the night Jones "forcibly touched her butt, forcibly touched her breasts, forcibly kissed her and forcibly touched her genitals."

Jones' lawyers countered by saying the five-year statute of limitations had already passed, but Weckerly's attorneys said Jones had been paying her for the past four years to keep her quiet.

Weckerly was seeking more than $1 million in damages.

"We are pleased with the Court’s Judgment against Ms. Weckerly,” McCathern told the newspaper. “Ms. Weckerly’s allegations were false. This case is over.”
