The head of a local nonprofit voluntarily dismissed his lawsuit seeking the identity of a person who published his personal information on a business social networking site, according to a court document filed Friday.

The notice filed by Rick D. Senft, president and chief executive officer of Passavant Memorial Homes, Marshall, doesn't say why he is dropping the lawsuit. He sued LinkedIn Corp. to find out who set up the account so that he could sue that person.

Jay Marinstein, one of Senft's lawyers, said in an email that Senft withdrew the lawsuit based on an agreement with the Mountain View, Calif., company but didn't say whether the company released the name of the person who set up the account. A representative of LinkedIn couldn't be reached for comment.
