Yep the headline says it all. On July 13, 2012 a case that in our opinion was never anything more than an abuse of the Courts to harass and try and silence free speech is officially DONE!
At 5:01 PM Eastern Time on Friday July 13, 2012 Daniel Parisi; Whitehouse.com; White House Communications Inc.; and Whitehouse Networks LLC acknowledged they had failed in their attempt to prove the Book Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder? was defamatory; or that the book contained any false statements.
Below is the United States Circuit Court of Appeals, for the DC Circuit ECF (Electronic Case File) notice informing all parties that Parisi et al. had moved to dismiss their Appeal of the March 31, 2011 dismissal of their claims against Amazon.com Inc. (The US District Court for DC had already dismissed the Parisi claims against all defendants, with Sinclair being the last to be dismissed by US District Court Judge Richard J. Leon on Feb 28, 2012).

We still do not understand exactly why Parisi has gone behind the US District Court and filed “Voluntary Dismissal’s” in the US District Court for the District of Columbia since the Court had already dismissed Parisi’ claims but they have:

STIPULATION of Dismissal by DANIEL PARISI, WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS INC., WHITEHOUSE NETWORK LLC, WHITEHOUSE.COM INC.. (Oparil, Richard)
At this stage it really doesn’t matter much, what matters is that what can be called the most ignored First Amendment (First Amendment Case The Media Should Be Covering ) litigation in the history of the US has, despite predictions to the contrary, failed on every level and every attempt.
Two years and Forty-Seven days after first filing the Complaint on May 28, 2010 Parisi et al.. has himself moved to end what many have opined was nothing more than an attempt to malign and smear Larry Sinclair and the other named defendants and to use the threat of multi-millions of dollars in legal expenses to try force Book Sellers into essentially removing a book from being available to the public who may be interested in purchasing it. Despite Sinclair having to represent himself in the litigation (going up against what has been called Washington, DC’s most powerful and largest Lobbying Law Firm-Patton Boggs LLC) and the vicious and personal attacks leveled against him by Parisi and Parisi counsel Richard J. Oparil with the assistance of a rabid group of Obama supporting bloggers, Sinclair prevailed and did so with dignity and honor.
July 13, 2012 marks the end of what many believe was nothing more than a politically motivated smear campaign. Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder? is still available and Sinclair’s new book When One Man Stands will be released on September 18, 2012.
Mr. Sinclair states: “I am thrilled with the final outcome of this matter. I have always stood by the content of my book. Perhaps now that this litigation which I personally believe was nothing more than a vindictive attempt to smear me and others is over, plaintiffs will fine something more productive to do with their time and money.” “I would not be honest if I did not make it clear I am of the OPINION this litigation was brought as a means of trying to curry favor with an Obama White House whether originating with plaintiffs or counsel representing plaintiffs,” added Sinclair.
