A Jane Doe who accused country singer Jimmie Allen of sexual assault has agreed to dismiss her lawsuit against him, but another sexual assault case still looms.

Jimmie Allen’s former manager — an unnamed “Jane Doe” — who accused the country singer of sexually assaulting her, has agreed to dismiss her lawsuit less than a year after initially filing it on May 11. At the same time, in court documents filed on Thursday (March 14), Allen agreed to drop his countersuit against the woman in which he accused her of defamation.

“FeganScott can confirm that Jane Doe and Jimmie Allen have reached a mutual accord as to Plaintiff’s claims and Mr. Allen’s counterclaims and have agreed to dismiss them,” Jane Doe’s attorney, Beth Fegan of law firm FeganScott, told Billboard. “The decision reflects only that both parties desire to move past litigation.”

Despite the charges against Allen being dropped, the case will move forward against management firm Wide Open Music and founder Ash Bowers, where the Jane Doe plaintiff was employed as Allen’s day-to-day manager. The plaintiff claims that neither Bowers nor Wide Open did their part to protect her from Allen and his abusive behavior, instead firing her when she brought it up to her employers.

“Plaintiff expressed in words and actions that Jimmie Allen’s conduct was unwelcome, including pushing him away, sitting where he could not reach her, telling him she was uncomfortable, and ‘no,’ and crying uncontrollably,” wrote attorneys for Jane Doe. “Allen made clear that Plaintiff’s job was dependent on her staying silent about his conduct.”

But Allen’s legal troubles are far from over, as he still faces another sexual assault lawsuit from another Jane Doe. That case, filed a month later than the first one on June 9, accused the singer of assaulting a woman in a Las Vegas hotel room and secretly recording it. Allen has denied all allegations against him, filing a countersuit in both cases, citing defamation.
