Jolley Lawsuit Dropped (Jul 13, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - State Sen. Clark Jolley has been dismissed from a libel lawsuit filed by his primary election opponent and says the state Ethics Commission has cleared him of two complaints.

Online court records show Jolley was dismissed from the lawsuit filed by Paul Blair and Jolley told The Oklahoman that he appreciates the decision.

Jolley defeated Blair in the June 26 Republican primary.

Jolley also said he's received a letter from the Ethics Commission that the complaints against him were dropped.

Blair had sued Jolley and the political action committee the Coalition for Oklahoma's Future Inc. over political ads that said Blair had violated state tax laws. The coalition paid for the ads and its attorney has defended them as factual.

The ethics complaints questioned Jolley's campaign finances.
