They filed a request for dismissal with prejudice, meaning they cannot refile their claims in court.

As this outlet reported, Vidal and her hubby sued DLD Accountancy LLP, Dennis Duban, David Wilcox, and Steve Wojnarowski for alleged breach of contract, negligence, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and misrepresentation. She also claimed they made a mess of her finances.

The actress said she hired DLD and Duban as her business manager and CPA tax advisor in 2013 to manage her and her entertainment company's finances. They also had the duty of filing taxes and paying bills for Vidal and her entertainment company, per the lawsuit.

Vidal claimed the company failed to pay bills, "routinely wrote checks and made payments with inaccurate sums to the wrong entities," or paid bills to incorrect parties, allegedly leaving the actress with $15k in tax liens from the IRS and California Franchise Tax Board in 2015.

Vidal alleged she was never informed of the debt by her business manager — and that's not all.
