Paula Deen lawsuit dismissed; no word if it is settlement

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- A lawsuit filed by a former employee against Paula Deen has been dismissed in federal court "with prejudice," meaning it cannot be filed again.

It was not immediately clear Friday afternoon whether there was a settlement in the civil suit.

A judge earlier this month dismissed the racial discrimination claims in the lawsuit filed by Lisa Jackson.

Jackson could not claim to be a victim of racial discrimination targeting African-American workers because she is white, U.S. District Judge William T. Moore Jr. ruled at the time. "At best, plaintiff is an accidental victim of the alleged racial discrimination," Moore wrote.

Other aspects of the lawsuit, including sexual harassment and abusive treatment, were still pending until Friday's order from Moore.
