A former state senator who resigned in 2012 over a domestic violence incident involving his ex-girlfriend has dropped his lawsuit against Phoenix.

Scott Bundgaard had alleged that city employees conspired to falsely portray him as an abuser rather than a victim in a February 2011 fight on a north Phoenix freeway.

Bundgaard filed a $10 million notice of claim against Phoenix police and city officials in June 2012.

The Peoria Republican stepped down in January 2012 before he had to testify to a Senate Ethics Committee that would decide whether he should be disciplined over the incident.
