Court records show a $1 million sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former assistant against Steven Seagal has been dismissed in Los Angeles.

Kayden Nguyen (WIN') had claimed Seagal forced her to stay in a Louisiana home and that the action star repeatedly fondled her. The allegations led to the suspension of filming on the reality series "Steven Seagal Lawman."

No reason was given for the dismissal granted Tuesday. Seagal's attorneys had been trying to resolve the case through private arbitration.

Attorneys for Seagal and Nguyen did not immediately return phone messages Wednesday.

Seagal had denied the allegations through his attorney.
