Shacknews has confirmed that PR firm Kohnke Communication's lawsuit against former Star Trek Online developer Perpetual Entertainment has been dropped following a mutual resolution.

"The latest development is that the parties have resolved their dispute," a source told Shacknews. "The dismissal of the case was filed with the Court this afternoon."

A representative of Kohnke confirmed the suit's dismissal this afternoon. "The parties have reached an agreement, but we can't detail any further than that," Kohnke told Shacknews. "Part of the agreement was that we would not detail."

Earlier today, Perpetual issued a response to the lawsuit, remarking that Kohnke's claims were "vague, uncertain, ambiguous and unintelligible." Filed in December, Kohnke's lawsuit alleges that the firm is owed nearly $300,000 for its work promoting Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising (PC), which was cancelled last November.

Shacknews has contacted all involved parties and will update as soon as more information is available.
