Reclusive author Harper Lee has reached a new settlement with Alabama museum bosses over her book To Kill a Mockingbird, just two weeks after re-launching legal action against them.
The writer filed suit against Monroe County Heritage Museum officials in Monroeville, which inspired her fictional town of Maycomb, last year (13) over allegations they were exploiting her name and the title of her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel on souvenirs without permission.
She maintained the museum had profited by more than $500,000 (£312,500) in 2011 after violating her trademark.
They reached an agreement in the case privately in February (14), but Lee declared the deal was off last month (May14), when she requested her lawsuit be reinstated.
However, a federal judge in Alabama officially dismissed the case on Thursday (05Jun14) after being notified that lawyers for both sides had struck a new settlement.
The terms of the new deal have remained confidential, but both sides have been ordered to pay their own court costs.
