      Harper Lee lawsuit settled

      A federal judge has ended the lawsuit filed by "To Kill a Mockingbird" author Harper Lee against a museum in her hometown of Monroeville. The judge dismissed the case after lawyers for Lee and the Monroe County Heritage Museum filed a joint motion seeking to end the suit. This comes two weeks after the judge reinstated the lawsuit at the request of the 88-year-old author.{}Lee filed suit last year accusing the museum of taking advantage of her work by selling souvenirs and using the title of her only published book as its website address. Lee and the museum settled the case in February, but the agreement was never signed.{} Court records don't disclose settlement terms.
