Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt has exorcised her legal demons.

The actress' former management firm has dropped a lawsuit alleging she never turned over an agreed-upon 10-percent commission for helping her secure her starring role on Ghost Whisperer, according to a request for dismissal filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

An attorney for Handprint Entertainment Inc. refused to comment on why her client opted to end the fight, saying the paperwork spoke for itself. The request was filed "with prejudice," meaning the plaintiff has agreed not to pursue the matter in the future.

According to Handprint's complaint, which was filed in April 2007, Hewitt hooked up with the company in 2002 and left in 2005, the year Ghost Whisperer premiered.

While the CBS drama, now entering its fourth season, brought the former Party of Five sixth wheel back "to national prominence as a TV star," Handprint claimed that she reneged on an oral agreement to turn over 10 percent of her earnings.

The firm had asked for at least $375,000 in damages.
