The Daily Camera reports that court records show that, on Wednesday, a Michigan Circuit Court judge dismissed the lawsuit filed by Burke Ramsey in December 2016.

A $750 million defamation lawsuit, filed against CBS by the brother of JonBenet Ramsey, has been settled.

The Daily Camera reports that court records show that, on Wednesday, a Michigan Circuit Court judge dismissed the lawsuit filed by Burke Ramsey in December 2016.

The terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.

The lawsuit said that Burke Ramsey's reputation was ruined after a television series, from more than two decades ago, suggested that he killed his 6-year-old sister.

A spokesperson for producers of the TV program said, in a statement, that "an amicable resolution of their differences" has been reached.

An attorney for CBS declined to comment.

The beauty pageant star was found dead in the basement of her family's home in Boulder, Colorado, in December 1996. A prosecutor cleared her parents and brother.
