The lawyer for Democratic state delegate Joseph D. Morrissey says their $10.35 million libel lawsuit against Style Weekly set to go to trial yesterday has been resolved in their favor. The attorney says the settlement includes "a full, unreserved and unequivocal apology" from Style and "a significant cash settlement." Style publisher Lori Collier Waran says that the paper will "let the apology speak for itself," and that it is happy to have the suit -- "a distraction for our staff" -- over.
