The news comes via Glass, who shared the news on Twitter today, thanking her followers for their support throughout what she described as an "ugly process."
She went on to call the dismissal "a victory for survivors of abuse and sexual misconduct in countries where abusers use the court system to further victimize and keep people silent."

Kath has not yet issued any sort of statement about the reported court dismissal, which has yet to be independently verified.
As previously reported, Kath filed the defamation suit after Glass publicly accused her former bandmate of rape and years of abuse last fall. At the time, Kath refuted the claims as "pure fiction."
Glass recently elaborated on the original allegations and the defamation suit in an interview with The Daily Beast. The publication also shared stories of several other women accusing Kath of sexual misconduct.
As previously reported, Toronto police are actively investigating multiple sex crimes against Kath, including one against a minor. At this time, no charges have been laid against Kath.
