Venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar on Friday dropped his lawsuit against political opposition research firm Definers Public Affairs.

Backstory: In November, Pishevar sued the firm, claiming that it had engaged in a smear campaign related to his arrest in London last year for alleged rape (he was never charged). Definers had denied the allegations.
