“Pledge This!” lawsuit settled

Reported by the Canadian Associated Press

Lawyers for Paris Hilton and investors have settled a lawsuit in Miami that claimed she didn’t do enough to promote her 2006 movie “Pledge This!”

Court papers filed late Thursday indicate a settlement was reached last week. No terms were announced and final documents must be filed by Nov. 11. Hilton’s spokeswoman and an attorney for the investors had no immediate comment Friday.

The investors originally sued the 29-year-old actress and celebrity socialite for $8.3 million. But after a trial, a federal judge ruled they could not collect that much. Earlier this year, the judge said Hilton could be liable for about $160,000.

Hilton insisted in trial testimony that she did all she could to promote “Pledge This!”
