NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A judge has dismissed a civil suit against former Saints linebacker Junior Galette after the plaintiff failed to appear in court Monday.

The woman suing Galette had claimed he physically and mentally abused her.

The two were also involved in an incident in January at his Kenner home.

Galette claimed he and his cousin removed the woman from the house after she refused to leave.

Both men were arrested, but prosecutors dropped the misdemeanor battery charges, citing lack of evidence.

Galette was released from the Saints in July. He was signed to a one year contract with Washington about a week later.
