It turns out Rick Ross is out of the doghouse, at least for now. A lawsuit against the 'God Forgives, I Don't' rapper was dropped today (July 21), which claimed that earlier this year,

his three pitbulls mauled Banks, a Yorkshire Terrier owned by his neighbor.

According to TMZ, the judge ruled that Banks' owner, identified as Maria in court documents, failed to "properly serve Ross the suit," making the case null and void.

The lawsuit claims the three pitbulls escaped from Ross' Atlanta mansion before entering Maria's property and brutally attacking her dog. She demanded more than $15,000 in damages and fees for the incident that allegedly left her pup with four large bite wounds, which led to his eventual death.

Although the case was dismissed, Maria told TMZ that, "she isn't giving up... and vows to correct her mistake and eventually get justice for Banks."
