U.S. District Judge John Shabaz on Friday, May 4, 2007 dismissed a lawsuit brought by Andrew Samuel Griffith, who played Sheriff Andy Taylor on the popular 1960s TV series. A man who changed his name to Andy Griffith and ran for sheriff did not harm the actor who played Mayberry's folksy sheriff on the "Andy Griffith Show," a federal judge ruled.
