Taylor Swift fans have reportedly dropped a class-action lawsuit against Live Nation, following last year’s ticket sales for the singer’s Eras Tour. 

The voluntary dismissal notice was submitted on behalf of lead plaintiff Michelle Sterloff on Tuesday, according to reports.

Live Nation and the plaintiffs had previously agreed to put the case on hold, while continuing ‘their ongoing settlement discussions through mediation’ according to a court filing in August.

The August filing said that the discussions would be completed no later than January 31, 2024. It is not clear if any settlement has been reached.

Fans filed the lawsuit just under a year ago following the beginning of the Eras Tour onsales. The complaint alleged that Live Nation-owned Ticketmaster had violated federal antitrust and unfair competition laws, while also misleading consumers.

The move followed another group of fans from across 13 different states that also sued Ticketmaster and Live Nation following the Eras Tour issues.
