CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) -A trial has been averted in a teenager's lawsuit claiming she suffered psychological trauma from nearly a two-year sexual relationship with former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick, a newspaper reported.
Steven Smith, an attorney for the Christiansburg teenager, told The Roanoke Times on Monday the parties have agreed in principle to a settlement in the $6.35 million lawsuit. He would not discuss details of the settlement.
A trial was to begin next week in Montgomery County on the lawsuit's charges of sexual battery upon a minor and willful and wanton conduct.
The girl, now 19, said in her lawsuit that she and Vick, brother of former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, had a sexual relationship that began in January 2004 and lasted through December 2005.
