Former celebrity chef Paula Deen may soon be out of legal hot water.
According to a court filing, a federal lawsuit against Deen will be dismissed by agreement and the parties agreed the dismissal would be "without any award of costs or fees to any party."
Lisa Jackson, a former employee of Deen, filed the lawsuit, alleging Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers committed numerous acts of violence, discrimination and racism that led to the end of her employment.
A federal judge has not yet signed off on the agreement, according to the filing.
On Friday, Deen released a statement, "While this has been a difficult time for both my family and myself, I am pleased that the judge dismissed the race claims and I am looking forward to getting this behind me, now that the remaining claims have been resolved."
Deen's contract was not renewed at Food Network after she admitted, in a court deposition, to using the "N-word" in the past. She also lost several endorsement deals to companies like Target and Home Depot.
Earlier this month, a federal judge ruled Jackson had no basis to sue Deen for racial discrimination because Jackson is white.
