The complaint stemmed from an article posted on the website of Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, which stated that the club had completed the transfer for Dempsey. The animosity that arose between the two sides led to the deal's collapse and Dempsey's sale to Tottenham on deadline day.
However, Fulham were not done there, as they continued to pursue the complaint past the transfer window.
On Wednesday, though, the London club finally dropped the case after Liverpool apologized for their actions.
According to Fulham's official website, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner offered a personal apology to Fulham chairman Mohamed Al Fayed, and Anfield managing director Ian Ayre sent a letter to Fulham counterpart Alistair Mackintosh.
Liverpool's extreme regret of the situation was quite clear and, frankly, a bit embarrassing.
While Fulham have dropped the complaint, though, the Premier League still have the option of pursuing the case.
It will be interesting to see what the league will do now that the complaint has been dropped.
