Police say the boy fell to the bottom of a pool behind the singer's downtown home Aug. 5 and became stuck in the drain.

A housekeeper tried unsuccessfully to free him. A contractor doing work at the home pulled him from the pool and performed CPR.

On Friday, a judge dismissed an emergency request by Usher's ex-wife seeking temporary custody of their two children.
