Former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and his accuser, Erica Kinsman, have come to an agreement to drop both civil lawsuits, according to court documents filed Wednesday.
Kinsman accused Winston of rape in 2013 following a 2012 incident. No charges were filed against Winston by the state attorney’s office after an investigation.
FSU brought in a former supreme court judge to conduct the student code of conduct hearing against Winston in 2013, but the judge could not find sufficient evidence to support either Kinsman’s or Winston’s claims.
Kinsman then filed a civil suit, and Winston responded with a countersuit for defamation.
The two parties filed motions of dismissal for each of their cases within 20 days on Dec. 14, according to the court documents.
