Oberst’s publicist confirmed Monday “that Conor had his lawyer ask the Judge to dismiss the complaint against Joanie Faircloth. Conor’s only goal throughout these court proceedings has been to expose the truth. As per his statement of last week: he looks forward to moving on to happier times.”

Below is a statement from Conor Oberst accepting the apology recently offered by the woman who falsely accused him of raping her.
I have accepted Joanie Faircloth’s apology and retraction to clear my name. This has been extremely difficult and stressful for me personally and for those I love. I’m appreciative of the family, friends, fans, and business partners who supported me throughout this and look forward to happier times as we all move forward with our lives.

Joanie Faircloth has recanted her accusations against Conor Oberst.
Joanie Faircloth, who alleged that Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst had sexually assaulted her in the comments of an XOJane article, has now admitted that she made the whole story up. In February, Oberst had filed a libel lawsuit against her, calling her accusations "absolutely, unequivocally false." Now Faircloth is asking for forgiveness for what she wrote.

A representative for Conor Oberst has confirmed that TMZ's story about Conor being dropped from his label is bullshit.
Conor's court filing doesn't say he was dropped by his label. He has NOT been dropped by his label.

Omaha.com has posted a new interview with Conor Oberst -- amongst it is the news that Desaparecidos is working on a new album that hopefully will be out next year.
Desaparecidos is hard at work on a new album. Hopefully it'll be out next year. The other projects there are no immediate plans but I wouldn't be surprised. You know how sentimental I am.

The New York Times has published a conversation between Conor Oberst and Lorde.
A lot of that was starting at a young age, not realizing that it wasn’t cool to, like, express your emotions. I wasn’t old enough to be cynical or jaded. I had a similar reaction when I heard your music. So much stuff at your level, in the Top 40 world, is just like vapor: You hear a song and maybe you can hum the melody but you walk away with zero ideas having been communicated. And with your writing, you can do it all at once. You can have this amazing pop anthem that the whole world’s going to sing, and you can still communicate solid, concrete ideas and paint this very vivid picture of lost teenagers in...

Conor Oberst has filed a libel lawsuit against a woman who wrote in online posts that she was sexually assaulted by the singer-songwriter.
Oberst's lawsuit says the woman posted accusations that Oberst raped her a decade ago in North Carolina after his brother, her middle school English teacher, introduced the two at an Oberst show. The lawsuit says she also claimed Oberst punched her in the face and that she was 16 at the time. He says the media coverage that resulted from the three posts in the comments section of a blog has damaged his career, especially in New York where most of the major music publishing houses are headquartered. He says he was in the company of his brother,...

Trigger warning: Sexual assault descriptions. An accusation has begun making the rounds of the internet after it was picked up from the comments of one post and then posted to Tumblr.

It now appears that the original poster has created a blog and posted more information about how and why this came out where and as it did. She has also been answering/responding to a few questions as well.

Update: We have received a statement from Conor Oberst's publicist.
Usually we wouldn't feel the urge to comment on spurious blog chatter but the recent allegations made about Conor Oberst by an anonymous...
