The family of former home run king Roger Maris and Anheuser-Busch Cos. settled a defamation lawsuit stemming from the brewer's termination of the family's beer distributorship just as jurors reached a verdict Tuesday. Neither side disclosed terms of the settlement, which came as the all-female jury reached a decision that was sealed, on the second day of deliberations in a three-week trial in state civil court. The Maris family had been seeking as much as $5 billion.
