Brother of JonBenet Ramsey reaches settlement with CBS
BOULDER, Colo. — A $750 million defamation lawsuit filed against CBS by the brother of JonBenet Ramsey has been settled.
The Daily Camera reported that court records show a Michigan Circuit Court judge on Wednesday dismissed the lawsuit filed by Burke Ramsey in 2016. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. A spokesperson for producers of the TV program said that “an amicable resolution of their differences” has been reached.
The lawsuit said that Burke Ramsey’s reputation was ruined after a television series suggested he killed his 6-year-old sister more than two decades ago. The beauty pageant star was found dead in the basement of her family’s home in Boulder in December 1996. A prosecutor cleared her parents and brother.
