Laura M. Laughlin, the former special agent in charge of the FBI’s Seattle office before abruptly resigning last year, has dismissed her lawsuit against the bureau and Justice Department, King 5 News reports.
Laughlin filed a federal lawsuit in 2011, claiming she faced sex discrimination and retaliation.
“As the agent in charge of 300 agents in Seattle, she was one of the highest level FBI agents ever to sue the bureau,” King 5 News wrote.
It’s still not clear why Laughlin quietly dismissed the case. Neither she nor her attorney could be reached for comment.
The Justice Department released a statement.
“Ms. Laughlin dismissed her case with no settlement,” said Assistant US Attorney Marine Utgoff Braswell.
