A Belleville woman has dropped her suit against a local roller rink.

Plaintiff Amonie Parker filed to dismiss her suit against Rolo Skate U.S.A without prejudice May 16.

St. Clair County Circuit Judge Lloyd Cueto granted the request three days later.

Parker had sought damages in excess of $104,000 and other relief.

The plaintiff alleged that a wheel came off a roller skate she was wearing while at the defendant's Fun Spot Skating Center during an adult skating night.

Parker claimed that while she was skating, a wheel came off her left skate and caused her to fall and break her ankle.

The plaintiff alleged that the skating rink did not maintain and properly inspect its skates.

The defendant moved to dismiss the suit alleging it had properly inspected the skates and had followed provisions in the Roller Skating Rink Safety Act.

The dismissal move was denied in February 2010.

Parker's move to dismiss the suit does not specify a reason.

Daniel Grimm represents Parker.

David Bub and James Craney represent the roller rink.

The case is St. Clair case number 09-L-446.
