MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Roy Moore has dropped a lawsuit he filed in July.

The lawsuit, filed by the former Alabama Chief Justice, accused several people and political action committees of defamation and political conspiracy stemming from the 2017 special U.S. Senate election.

Adam Muhlendorf, Longleaf Strategies, INC., Edward Still, Highway 31 Super PAC, Bully Pulpit Interactive, Jim Margolis of Waterfront Strategies, Priorities USA, and Josh Scherwin were named as defendants in the lawsuit.

No reason was given in the motion to dismiss the lawsuit.

In the court documents, it stated "Roy S. Moore and Kayla Moore hereby voluntarily dismiss this action against all defendants without prejudice."

Moore was accused of sexual misconduct and pursuing teen girls when he was in his 30s.
