A U.S. district judge has dismissed the copyright-infringement lawsuit brought against Guillermo Del Toro’s Oscar-winning film “The Shape of Water.”
Central District Judge Percy Anderson threw out the lawsuit on Monday, ordering that the plaintiff — the estate of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paul Zindel — “takes nothing,” according to a brief ruling obtained by The Times on Tuesday.
Anderson also ruled that “the action is dismissed with prejudice,” meaning that it has been dismissed permanently and cannot be brought back to court.
Model Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner have announced their engagement.
The happy couple shared the news on social media Tuesday, an unusal move given that the two have kept relatively quiet about their six-year relationship.

Dan Harmon, the co-creator of “Rick and Morty” and creator of “Community,” deleted his Twitter account Monday after a disturbing 2009 video resurfaced online.
The video broke out toward the end of the weekend while Harmon was at San Diego Comic-Con partaking in a drunken, fake radio show-style panel discussion with fellow “Rick and Morty” creator Justin Roiland and voice actress Cassie Steele.
Harmon deleted his social media account soon after.
Comedians Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson are returning to HBO for another dose of “2 Dope Queens.”
HBO has ordered four new hourlong specials from the duo that will premiere next year, the premium cable network said in a statement Monday.

An introspective Dennis Quaid touched on faith, music, family and his upcoming portrayal of President Reagan in a sprawling interview Monday on NBC’s “Megyn Kelly Today.”
But it was the actor’s insight into his former drug use and his past relationship with actress Meg Ryan that were particularly interesting.
Quaid, 64, speaking to Kelly at the Reagan Ranch near Santa Barbara, touched on his 1980s cocaine addiction, sharing (again) that he was doing coke on a near-daily basis when he arrived in Hollywood. The drug, he said, was “even in some movie budgets.”
