Hunter Biden is dropping a lawsuit against former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani that accused him of manipulating data found on the first son's laptop.

Hunter’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, filed the stipulation for dismissing the case Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. 

Lowell requested the lawsuit be dismissed “without prejudice, with each party bearing its own attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses," according to the New York Post. 

Documents show attorneys from the various parties have agreed to the terms. 

The lawsuit originally brought by Hunter Biden claimed that Giuliani and attorney Robert Costello violated the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and manipulated data on his infamous "laptop from hell."

The lawsuit sought $75,000 in damages and payment for attorneys’ fees.

“This dismissal – along with Hunter Biden’s conviction based on evidence taken from the laptop – is a vindication for Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Costello as well as all of the media outlets who broke the laptop story in 2020 and suffered orchestrated censorship by social media, the leftist mainstream media, and others who engaged in election interference,” Giuliani’s attorney, Joe Sibley, told The Post in a statement.
