Greg,
Try this: as the oil is draining, unscrew the filter about 1.5 turns...just enough to break the seal plus a little more. Leave it there until the oil is finished draining from the pan...say 10 minutes. By this time the filter should have drained and you can remove it with very little oil dripping.
