Alison Victoria Gramenos is calling off the legal dogs on an Oak Park notary public whom she accused of forgery.

The “Windy City Rehab” star dropped the civil suit that she filed in February against Adriana Rodriguez, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The June 30 agreement between the two parties states that Rodriguez will not sign Gramenos’ name to any document or notarize any document with her signature for five years.

Gramenos’ settlement resolves just one of the legal entanglements she’s found herself in. Just two weeks ago, Gramenos and former co-star Donovan Eckhardt were sued by Chicago’s Ward family over their $3 million investment that was not repaid as stipulated by the contract. It appears the cases are related.

According to the Tribune, Rodriguez and Gramenos issued a joint statement in which they said Rodriguez’s cooperation was instrumental in the situation as a whole coming to light.

Gramenos had previously accused Rodriguez of signing loan documents, operating agreements and lien waivers and notarizing them. Someone else committed forgery, Gramenos said in the Feb. 18 lawsuit. The documents submitted with the suit were for work at 885 W. Lill Ave. in Lincoln Park, 1635 W. Pierce Ave. in Wicker Park, 1636 N. Wood St. in Bucktown, and 2123 W. Thomas St. in Ukrainian Village. Several of those properties were cited in the lawsuit filed by the Ward family, which accuses Eckhardt of fraud.

Meanwhile, two lawsuits filed by unhappy customers continue. Both homebuyers accused Gramenos and Eckhardt of fraud and shoddy workmanship. The city’s buildings department also pulled their permits. [Tribune] — James Kleimann
