Two Former NC Legislators Settle Defamation Lawsuit

Former state legislator Stephen LaRoque has apologized to another former lawmaker to settle a defamation lawsuit.

Laroque also agreed to pay attorney's fees for former state legislator Art Pope. That's according to Pope.

Pope sued in September 2006 and alleged that Larogue said in media interviews that Pope was buying legislators. Pope says he accepts the apology.
