A lawsuit against the Chicago Sun-Times and a reporter over a story about the effect of winter on rats has been voluntarily dismissed.

Earlier this month, a Cook County judge entered the motion regarding the defamation lawsuit. The suit alleged at the time that a story in the Sun-Times in February 2014 by staff reporter Stefano Esposito wrongly quoted Carl Easter, owner of Logan Square Pest Control, and contained incorrect statements about the business.

“The Sun-Times continues to stand by the accuracy of the story,” Sun-Times Publisher and Editor Jim Kirk said.
