From the Boston Globe’s Bill Griffith

The libel suit of Channel 4 sports anchor Bob Lobel (above) against the creator, syndicator, and users of the ”Get Fuzzy” cartoon quietly ended in Norfolk Superior Court last Tuesday when a stipulation of dismissal was filed by Lobel’s attorney, Harry Manion. A joint statement said, ”The parties have settled the matter to their mutual satisfaction. The defendants did not intend to suggest that Bob Lobel has ever been intoxicated while on the air, and apologize to him for any harm caused him by the publication of the ‘Get Fuzzy’ cartoon. The terms of the settlement are confidential.” The amazing thing is that it took lawyers for the various parties more than six months to figure out how to say, ”I’m sorry.”
