A much-discussed lawsuit brought against the state of California in an effort to obtain legal recognition of Bigfoot's existence has been dropped by the woman behind the endeavor.
Claudia Ackley made headlines earlier this year when she, along with Canadian Sasquatch researcher Todd Standing, filed the Bigfoot-based lawsuit aimed at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
However, with a March 19th hearing date fast approaching, Ackley was convinced by her attorney last week to have the case dismissed for fear that the initial filing would not hold up in court.
The reasoning behind that argument is that the lawsuit had been written by Ackley and Standing with the help of a paralegal, but without any input from an actual attorney who would know the legal nuances necessary to produce an airtight filing.
