Donald Trump has dropped another lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James.

On Tuesday, Trump dropped a second lawsuit against the New York Democrat which sought to block her investigations into him and the Trump Organization.

According to reports from The Hill, Trump’s and James’s attorneys indicated in a one-page filing to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit that they agreed to end the former president’s suit.

When reached for comment, Trump attorney Alina Habba said, “This appeal was voluntarily withdrawn for strategic purposes.”

“I am pleased that Donald Trump has withdrawn both of his pending actions against my office. As we have shown all along, we have a legitimate legal case against him and his organization, and we cannot be bullied or dissuaded from pursuing it,” James said in a statement.

Friday’s dismissal was made without prejudice, meaning Trump’s attorneys can refile the same claim again. Tuesday’s filing, meanwhile, was made with prejudice.

Trump has long derided James’s efforts against him as a political witch-hunt motivated by a political vendetta.
