LOS ANGELES — The lawsuit over the mental competency of the ailing mogul Sumner M. Redstone was dismissed Monday, cutting short a trial that had drawn attention for its lurid details and the potential impact on Mr. Redstone’s $42 billion media empire.
Judge David J. Cowan of Los Angeles County Superior Court made the announcement in a preliminary ruling when proceedings resumed Monday morning, and said he would issue a final ruling after hearing arguments. In previous hearings, he has typically stayed with his initial ruling.
