Former VANOC boss John Furlong has dropped a defamation lawsuit against freelance reporter Laura Robinson.

She wrote a damaging story about him in 2012, which was published in the Georgia Straight newspaper.

Furlong is speaking to reporters a day after the last of three lawsuits accusing him of sexual abuse in the 1960s and 70s was dismissed or dropped.

He says he will defend himself if needed in Robinson’s countersuit.
