PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 19 (UPI) -- An Oregon woman who sued pop star Justin Bieber after receiving permanent ear damage at one of his concerts has dropped the lawsuit, court documents indicate.

Stacey Betts, of Wilsonville, Ore., filed the $9 million federal lawsuit against the musician, concert promoter AEG Worldwide, Island Def Jam Records and Vulcan Sports and Entertainment, the owner of the Rose Garden arena, last summer. She said Bieber worked the crowd into such a frenzy at the 2010 concert, the crowd's screams damaged her eardrums, The Oregonian reported Monday.

She filed documents Jan. 7 asking for the case to be dismissed because she "does not wish to put any burden on this respected court's time. Plaintiff maintains belief in the merit of her case."

TMZ reported Friday Betts did not have a lawyer and moving forward with the case on her own would have been difficult.
