Katherine Heigl filed a lawsuit against the drug store company Duane Reade back in April but the actress has dropped all charges against them. This decision to file the $6 million lawsuit came into consideration after the store posted paparazzi shots of her carrying the store's branded bags on their Twitter and Facebook accounts without her consent. According to the 'Knocked Up' star, the store had violated New York civil rights statutes which protect use of likenesses for purpose of trade. The blonde actress accused them of making profit off her pictures which they had no right to.
However, the actress has now dropped down the charges after she struck a deal with Duane Reade, who is now going to make an undisclosed contribution to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation in exchange for her dropping the suit at the Manhattan Federal Court.
This animal welfare charity was setup by Katherine Heigl along with some help from her mother after her brother passed away in an accident in 1986. From what we have told by The Hollywood Reporter, Katherine's lawyer, Corey Field has stated that 'The parties have agreed to keep the terms of the agreement confidential.'
