LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An attorney says the case filed by a magazine freelancer over a videotape that purportedly shows Heath Ledger doing drugs has ended.
Neville Johnson, an attorney for the former People magazine freelancer who sued to get the tape destroyed, did not disclose terms of the arrangement. He would only say, "The matter has been resolved."
An attorney for Splash News & Picture Agency, the paparazzi firm that surreptitiously shot Ledger in the freelancer's hotel room in 2006, said Tuesday he could not comment.
Johnson filed the lawsuit on behalf of the reporter, identified only as Jane Doe. A judge recently rejected her motions to inspect Splash's computer and e-mail records and take the deposition of the shooter, who now lives in Japan.
