Brother of JonBenet Ram­sey reaches set­tle­ment with CBS

Orlando Sentinel (Sunday) - - NATION & WORLD -

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.
