“Rick and Morty” co-creator Justin Roiland has been cleared of domestic violence charges reports Variety.

Roiland, who pleaded not guilty to the charges in 2020, appeared in court in January for a pre-trial hearing with a second one scheduled for next month.

Adult Swim severed ties with Roiland at the end of January because of the charges. Roiland also resigned from Squanch Games, the video game developer banner that he co-founded in 2016.

Kimberly Edds, a spokeswoman for the Orange County District Attorney’s office, says in a statement: “We dismissed the charges today as a result of having insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Roiland has since taken to social media to respond, writing in a statement that he’s “thankful the case has been dismissed” and added that “I’m still deeply shaken by the horrible lies that were reported about me during this process… I have always known that these claims were false – and I never had any doubt that this day would come.”

Roiland adds that with the legal case having ended he is “determined to move forward and focus both on my creative projects and restoring my good name.”

Roiland’s credits also include Hulu’s “Solar Opposites” and “Koala Man”. Like Adult Swim, Hulu similarly dropped him from both series in January – both shows are continuing on without his involvement.
