The settlement was announced on Tuesday in a Los Angeles federal courthouse right before a trial on damages was scheduled to begin.

The estate had sued Howard Mann and his businesses in January 2011, claiming he had violated Jackson copyrights in a book and other merchandise he sold in collaboration with Katherine Jackson.
