Settlement in Robert Wone Wrongful Death Suit

Bloggers at watchdog site Who Murdered Robert Wone are reporting that a settlement has been reached in a wrongful death lawsuit brought against the men police suspected of killing Wone, a DC attorney.

This tip comes just one day after a private mediation session held with retired Judge Howard Chasanow yesterday, instead of the earlier June 14th mediation lifted by Judge Michael Rankin. Arguments in the case were slate for later this October.

Kathy Wone originally brought the $20 million dollar wrongful death suit on November 25, 2008, around the same time the U.S. Attorney’s Office filed criminal charges of evidence tampering, obstruction of justice, and conspiracy first against Ward, and later with his two Swann Street house-mates.

As the folks at WMRW point out, in June of last year, Joe Price, Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward were found not guilty in all charges relating to Wone’s death.
