RENO, Nev. (AP) - Lawyers for Ben Roethlisberger and a woman who
accused him of raping her at a Lake Tahoe hotel-casino in 2008 have
reached a settlement that ends her civil lawsuit against the
Steelers quarterback.

Cal Dunlap, the Reno lawyer representing the woman, told The
Associated Press on Friday "the matter has been resolved." He
said he had no further comment.

The Reno Gazette-Journal first reported the settlement. It also
dismisses claims against Harrah's employees whom the woman had
accused of covering up the alleged sexual assault in
Roethlisberger's penthouse suite.

Dunlap said in papers filed in Washoe District Court that his
client wanted to have the case dismissed because all the parties
had reached a resolution of all claims and counterclaims.

The Pittsburgh quarterback's lawyer has had no comment.
