The Situation Bounces Out Of Court ... Like A Bad Check

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino scored a victory in court -- for a change -- getting his bouncy paycheck case dropped. 

We broke the story ... workers at his NJ tanning salon went to cops in June claiming their paychecks bounced. Sitch blamed it on a clerical error, but one woman pressed charges anyway.

Situation's lawyer tells us ... as soon as Mike found out he made good on the woman's check -- which was less than $250 -- and she went on her way.

As a formality, he had to show up in court on Monday ... and the judge officially dropped the charge and dismissed the case.

If only federal tax fraud indictments went away that easily.
