Chicago Bears offensive lineman Lance Louis and former teammate Nick Sandford have reached a settlement to end the civil suit filed by Sandford.

Louis and Sandford were teammates at San Diego State University where the alleged incident occurred. The terms of the settlement were confidential.

In 2009, Sandford filed the lawsuit that claimed Louis “snuck up” and attacked him in a team meeting room in November 2008. According to the suit, Sandford suffered a concussion, ruptured eardrum and facial injuries as a result of the attack.

Sandford also sued formed SDSU head coach Chuck Long for allegedly covering up the attack.

Sandford missed the final three games of the season as a result of his injures, and Louis was allowed to finish the season because it gave the team a better chance for success, according to the suit.

According to Police reports, the incident wasn’t reported to the police until 15 days after it happened.
