The Florida judge called Vanessa Lopez, the alleged mistress, a "dirty liar" and said there's proof she lied about her legal history with NBA star Kenyon Martin, who accused her of stealing his credit cards and spending thousands of dollars.
"[Lopez] lied often. She lied about facts important to the defense, and she demonstrated an utter disrespect for the system of justice," the judge said, according to TMZ.
TMZ also reports that Lopez claimed she "did not know of" any previous restraining orders that had been issued against her, when there were official records showing she was hit with one stemming from a case involving an ex-boyfriend.
Earlier this year, Lopez's attorneys abandoned her case following her statement on the alleged scandal.
According to TMZ, the judge dismissed the case on the basis of fraud on the court with prejudice.
Lopez claimed that she had been in an affair with Shaq for over five years. She originally filed her lawsuit in 2010, saying that the basketball star was trying to defame her and launch a campaign designed to deter her image.
Lopez was also hit with a restraining order from Shaq last April, after she spread rumors that he was cyber stalking her and threatening her. She was seeking punitive damages from the case, vying for charges of racketeering, invasion of privacy and intentional inflection of emotional distress, according to The Hollywood Gossip.
