Online records show that Young opted to drop the lawsuit with prejudice today (December 7). Young formally sued the Donald Trump campaign in August, due to his use of 'Rockin' In The Free World' and Greendale's 'Devil's Sidewalk' at rallies. Specifically, Young's lawyers cited Trump's Tulsa rally in the case, claiming the Trump campaign used the songs without license or permission.
