It took about two weeks, but a lawsuit clearly alleging false accusations toward Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has been tossed out of court by U.S. District Judge in Florida.

According to USA Today, Judge Steven Merryday agreed that the suit, which, in ridiculous and absurd language, claimed Manziel sexually harrassed a woman. The claims were clearly a hoax.

"The complaint is stricken as immaterial, impertinent and scandalous," Merryday wrote, via USA Today.
