Abraham Quintanilla lawsuit dismissed over ‘To Selena, With Love’ production.

Lawyers for the father of Selena Quintanilla and a TV production company wanting to turn her widower’s memoir into a series have reached a deal.

Abraham Quintailla’s lawsuit against Endemol Shine Latino will be dismissed and both sides will pay their own legal fees, according to an agreed order signed Monday by 319th District Judge David Stith.

The suit, filed in 2016, named Chris Perez, his production company Blue Mariachi, as well as Endemol Shine Latino. Quintanilla’s lawsuit was aimed at blocking a television series his former son-in-law planned based on his memoir “To Selena, With Love.”

The agreement came days after Perez’s deposition in which he stated that neither he nor his company, Blue Mariachi Productions, remained bound to a contract to sell exclusive rights to the production company, according to the agreed order.

The California-based TV production company had also argued a Texas court didn’t have jurisdiction to decide the matter.

The agreed order leaves open the possibility the production company could be sued again.

An order also signed Monday stipulates that much of the details of the case will now be kept confidential including depositions, financial records, and “project production information.”

It wasn’t immediately clear how the lawsuit may proceed. Perez and his company lost an appeal in November to have the case thrown out.

Quintanilla’s attorneys have argued a television series would violate an estate properties agreement Perez and family members of Selena signed in May 1995 following her death. The agreement stipulated Quintanilla owns entertainment properties like the name, voice, signature, photograph and likeness of Selena.
