A Charlotte District Court Judge has dismissed a protective order request by a woman who said Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy assaulted and threatened to kill her.
Judge Charlotte Brown dismissed the order after the accuser failed appear for the hearing Thursday.
Attorney Stephen Goodwin also announced as he left the courtroom that he's no longer representing the accuser, citing "irreconcilable differences."
Goodwin filed a motion on behalf of the accuser on Wednesday, accusing the Pro Bowl defensive end of throwing her on a bed full of guns and threatening to kill her if she went to the media.
Hardy wasn't present in the courtroom Thursday.
While the protective order request has been dismissed, charges against Hardy remain.
His next court date is set for June 27.
