NEW YORK (AP)

A tennis referee who was cleared of beating her husband to death with a coffee mug says she was thrilled to be working the US Open again.

Lois Goodman said Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show that it meant everything to her to be invited back to referee matches at the recent US Open in New York.

Goodman was arrested by Los Angeles police at the 2012 US Open as she arrived to work as a line judge.

Authorities charged her with bludgeoning her 80-year-old husband with a coffee cup in April 2012. The charges were dropped in November.

Goodman filed a federal lawsuit last month against the Los Angeles Police Department, the county coroner's department and others for false arrest and malicious prosecution.

The 2013 US Open ended Monday.
