According to an MLSE spokesperson, all charges from the lawsuit against Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri have been dropped from an incident following the 2019 NBA Finals.

MLSE's official statement can be found below.

"Masai has been completely vindicated, as we always knew he would be. We are disappointed that he and his family have had to endure the past 18 months of worry and uncertainty, but for their sake we are pleased the legal process has come to an end - and especially pleased that the claims made against Masai and MLSE were dismissed entirely, free of any financial settlement. We continue to be deeply troubled by the fact that Masai was put in this position in the first place, and believe he should never have had to defend himself. Masai is taking some time to process the ordeal, and intends to address it publicly at a later date."
