Friesen called that claim “an outright lie.” He told the judge Cohlmia had acted as his agent and that her check for the tickets had involved his funds.
Friesen also told the judge she had followed the rules of professional conduct for an attorney and kept his money separate from her personal funds in her checking account.
In dismissing the case, Friesen complained Strube and her attorney “have insisted on making petty, false and misleading statements against” Cohlmia “in an attempt to falsely place a doubt in the public's mind about her ethics.”
He told the judge his “desire for the Thunder tickets is not worth the pettiness.”
The dismissal was filed Dec. 17.
Strube's attorney said Monday, “We're glad it's over.”
