SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Both sides in the Paula Deen sexual harassment and workplace discrimination lawsuit have filed paperwork for the case to be dismissed.

Both parties have mutually agreed to dismiss the case and a settlement agreement has been filed with the court.

WTOC's Don Logana first reported two weeks ago that both sides in the sexual harassment and work place discrimination lawsuit have filed paperwork for the case to be dismissed.

Deen and her brother, Earl "Bubba" Hiers, had mediation hearings with plaintiff Lisa Jackson, earlier this month. The lawsuit will not go to trial.

An undisclosed settlement has been reached. A judge's signature will make the deal official. 

Jackson, the former general manager of Uncle Bubba's Oyster House, filed the lawsuit in March 2012.
