NEW YORK (AP) - The executive director of the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board has withdrawn her lawsuit against the chairman of the police watchdog agency.

The Daily News (https://nydn.us/1YSeK0m ) says Mina Malik dropped the suit against Richard Emery “without prejudice” on Tuesday. Her attorney says she can reinstate it if she’s retaliated against or mistreated.

In a statement, Malik thanked Mayor Bill de Blasio for “responding to our concerns” and accepting Emery’s resignation.

Emery resigned a day after the April 12 suit was filed. It alleged he used sexist language against Malik and undermined her authority.

The CCRB investigates claims of misconduct by police, but the NYPD has the final say on whether discipline is imposed.

Emery called the lawsuit frivolous and a distraction from the important work of the agency.
