(Gary Condit) 's Wife Settles National Enquirer Suit
Advertisements [?]
FRESNO, Calif. (AP)--The wife of former congressman Gary Condit has settled her $10 million libel lawsuit against the National Enquirer over its report she verbally attacked Chandra Levy days before the Washington intern disappeared.

Neville Johnson, an attorney for Carolyn Condit, didn't reveal details of the settlement reached in U.S. District Court here Wednesday.

The agreement also applies to a $15 million complaint Carolyn Condit filed against the Enquirer's sister publication, Star Editorial Inc., and their parent company American Media Inc., attorneys for Condit and the tabloid said.

Thomas B. Kelly, a lawyer representing the National Enquirer, wouldn't elaborate on the agreement.

The lawsuit concerned an Aug. 7, 2001 article that cited confidential police sources to report Condit "flew into a rage" during a telephone conversation with Levy.

Carolyn Condit said she never spoke with or met Levy, whose skeletal remains were found in a Washington, D.C. park in May 2002. Washington police have said there was no truth to the Enquirer report. <cut\ACQDJON200307101530DOWJONESDJONLINE001174.htm
