Williamson County commissioners have dropped their lawsuit against Big Fish Entertainment.
The lawsuit was over a contract Sheriff Robert Chody made with the "Live PD" reality TV show. Commissioners said the contract was agreed to without permission from the Williamson County commissioners.
On Tuesday, Nov. 10, following an executive session, the Williamson County Commissioner Court voted 4-0 to drop the lawsuit against Big Fish Entertainment.
"Discussions are ongoing regarding claims against Sheriff Chody," a Williamson County official said.
There is a temporary injunction in place that prohibits Sheriff Chody from signing another contract or participating in another show.
Chody lost his re-election bid earlier this month against former Williamson County assistant chief deputy Mike Gleason. Gleason will serve as the new sheriff in January.
