Tv - Donald Trump Withdraws Lawsuit Against Bill Maher

Business mogul and reality Tv star Donald Trump has withdrawn a $5 million (£3.1 million) lawsuit he filed against U.S. comedian Bill Maher.

The Apprentice boss took offence to a joke Maher made during a January (13) appearance on America's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, on which he offered to donate $5 million to a charity of Trump's choice if the Republican could prove his dad wasn't an orangutan - a play on the businessman's relentless efforts to uncover facts about U.S. President Barack Obama's heritage.

He quipped, "The colour of his hair and the colour of an orange orangutan is (sic) the only two things in nature of the same colour."

Trump accepted the informal challenge and promptly mailed Democrat Maher a copy of his birth certificate - and he launched legal action in February (13) when Maher laughed off his demands for payment.

However, the property tycoon moved to have the case dismissed by officials at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday (29Mar13), although a representative for Trump insists the outspoken star plans to amend the suit and refile it "at a later date", reports Tmz.com.
