A lawsuit against Justin Bieber concerning his track 'Sorry' has been dropped by singer/songwriter Casey Dienel.

Casey Dienel has filed paperwork to dismiss a suit against the 'Never Say Never' hitmaker, in which she claimed his track 'Sorry' featured "unique characteristics of the female vocal riff" similar to her 2014 song 'Ring the Bell', according to TMZ. 

The 32-year-old singer/songwriter, who is also known as White Hinterland, filed the lawsuit in 2016, months after 'Sorry' dropped in October 2015.

The track - which was produced by Skrillex - is the second single from his fourth studio album 'Purpose'. 

In the lawsuit, Casey also claimed both songs feature keyboard synthesizers, samples, synth bass, drums, and percussion.

She also named Skrillex and the song's writers as defendants in the suit. 

This comes after Justin recently revealed he has been working on new ways to "be generous".
