Newsman Bob Simons’ widow has settled a wrongful death lawsuit against a limo company that allegedly allowed a reckless driver to ferry the CBS veteran home from work in February 2015.

“The family is relieved that this portion of the case is behind them,” said Howard Hershenhorn, attorney for Francoise Anne-Marie Simon.

Skyline Credit Ride will pay Simon an undisclosed sum to end the suit. The details of the deal are subject to a confidentiality agreement.
