SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Both sides in the Paula Deen sexual harassment and workplace discrimination lawsuit have filed paperwork for the case to be dismissed.

Both parties have mutually agreed to dismiss the case and a settlement agreement has been filed with the court.

Deen and her brother, Earl "Bubba" Hiers, had mediation hearings with plaintiff Lisa Jackson, earlier this month. The lawsuit will not go to trial.
