Case Dismissed

  A lawsuit alleging sexual assault  against Bryon Hefner, the husband of former state Senate president and  Amherst Democrat Stan Rosenberg, and against Rosenberg himself is being  dropped. 

 A statement was released Thursday by the lawyer for the man  identified as John Doe, a former legislative aide.  

The attorney didn't  provide further comment except to say there was not a settlement.   

Hefner still faces criminal charges for alleged sexual assaults  involving victims he met through work in Beacon Hill.

Neither Hefner or Rosenberg have commented.
