Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Scott Silverman has dismissed a civil fraud lawsuit punctuated during trial by a boss who sent text messages to his employee who was on the witness stand.

Silverman ordered a mistrial in May after learning from a spectator of the text messaging, and he dismissed Sky’s suit over the sale of a North Miami Beach condo tower with prejudice last week.
