Another major loss for Josh Duggar! RadarOnline.com can exclusively report that a judge has dismissed the disgraced television star’s lawsuit against officials in his home state of Arkansas.

Radar reported in March that Josh, 30, filed a lawsuit against both the city of Springdale and Washington County, Arkansas, claiming the authorities illegally released documents alleging he sexually molested his sisters. In the shocking suit, Josh claimed he suffered from “emotional distress.”

New filings in the case obtained by Radar show that the judge tossed out the entire case on Nov. 30. The judge’s ruling came after the city of Springdale filed a motion to dismiss the case in October.

At the time, the city of Springdale called Josh’s claims “absurd.”

Josh had a certain amount of time to file a response to Springdale’s October filing – but he failed to do so.

“The time afforded by the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure for the Plaintiff to respond has passed and Plaintiff has made no responsive filing,” the court document stated.

“It is therefore, considered, ordered and adjudged, that this matter shall be dismissed with prejudice as to the re-filing of any claim, counterclaim, or filed herein,” the legal document continued.

This is the second lawsuit of Josh’s that has been tossed by a judge. The first lawsuit he lost was filed at the federal level.
