Legal fallout from Charles Oakley’s ejection from a Knicks game two years ago has gone nowhere.

He was cleared of assault charges. Now, his lawsuit against Knicks owner James Dolan was dismissed.

Knicks release:

The Madison Square Garden Company today released the following statement regarding the Court ruling on the Charles Oakley matter.

“We thank the court for its ruling. This was an incident that no one was happy about. Maybe now there can be peace between us.”

Days since an absurd Knicks statement: 7 0

Dolan is petty and vindictive. Oakley is proud and headstrong.

This isn’t a call for compromise. Dolan wants peace on his terms, which means Oakley buckling. Good luck with that.

Even without a victorious lawsuit, Oakley can still stand tall. Everyone else already sided with him.

As for Dolan… his lawyers earned their paychecks.
