LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - A lawsuit against actress Suzanne Somers over a failed Kentucky-based meal-preparation business has been dismissed.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Fayette County Circuit Judge James Ishmael ruled Wednesday afternoon there was not enough evidence.

Somers said she felt she had done nothing wrong and it was “great to be vindicated.”

Suzanne’s Kitchen opened in 2006 in Lexington but closed a few months later. Louisville businessman and attorney John Shannon Bouchillon sued, claiming he wasn’t told the truth before or after investing $400,000.

Somers testified Wednesday that her name and likeness were used to promote the store, but the company was run by former Kentucky Gov. John Y. Brown. Brown was dropped as a defendant before the trial.
