Actress' friend settles lawsuit

February 14, 2009|Harriet Ryan

Samantha Ronson, the deejay companion of actress Lindsay Lohan, has reached a tentative settlement with a noted 1st Amendment attorney she sued for malpractice, her lawyer said Friday.

The tentative deal also resolves a countersuit that New York attorney Martin Garbus brought against Ronson for failing to pay fees stemming from his work on a defamation suit against blogger Perez Hilton.

"The parties have resolved the litigation to their mutual satisfaction," said Ronson's current lawyer, David Bass. The terms were confidential.

Garbus did not return a call seeking comment.
