A Los Angeles court has dismissed Paris Hilton's $30m invasion of privacy lawsuit against the Internet company which owns the rights to the infamous skin-flick of the hotel heiress getting down-and-dirty with her former squeeze. The reasons for the dismissal are unclear, Reuters reports.

UK tabloid the Sun, however, reports that it is Hilton herself who has dropped the lawsuit in return for a cash sum plus a percentage of profits on sales of the video - a deal the paper describes as "sleazy money".

Hilton and Rick Salomon's 2001 rumpy-pumpy escapades had already won an admiring audience on the Internet when Salomon sold the rights to Los Angeles smut outfit Red Light District Video. The company had intended to release the 45-minute pornathon under the rather brilliant title "One Night In Paris".

Hilton's lawsuit noted that the material had been "intended only for personal use". Hilton's other acting credits include appearing in Fox TV hit "Simple Life" - although the lissom lovely resolutely kept her kit on for that particular performance. ®
