According to Lilly on FB, she received a personal call from Dr. Mikovits tonight and was told that ALL CRIMINAL CHARGES HAVE BEEN DROPPED

This is wonderful news!  I am very happy for Dr. Mikovits!  This is good news for everyone who suffers with M.E.  Our foremost researcher is free of this burden.

 :) Very good news and it will be interesting to see how well it is covered by the same media that reported on it up to now. :-\
ME/"CFS" patients are too disabled to do adequate advocacy. Other diseases have far more activists -- usually family members. How can we get more good healthy people involved?

Great news. This should never have got into the legal system, but I'm delighted it's now sorted.

It was dropped by the prosecutor (District Attorney).  The civil suit filed by WPI against Dr. Mikovits is still pending.

It certainly will be interesting.  When she was arrested, it was published worldwide.  We shall see what happens now that the charges have been dismissed.

Best news in absolutely ages, I'm just so happy for her.
Hopefully the civil suit will be dropped too and Dr Mikovits can get on with doing what she does best without all this rubbish hanging over her.

I am thankful to my fellow advocates that never faltered in their support!
