    Attorneys agreed to dismiss a $100,000 lawsuit against 2012 Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and his top aide.

    Rep. Ryan and his chief of staff were being sued for damages stemming from a 2014 car accident. No reason was specified in the court order which confirmed the dismissal of the suit.

    Ryan’s Chief of Staff Kevin Seifert was driving the congressman’s car along I-395, without passengers, when he rear-ended the vehicle carrying a pair of D.C.-area men, the suit alleged. The men said they’d suffered injuries.
