NBC has settled a $105-million lawsuit brought by the sister of Louis Conradt, a Texas assistant county prosecutor who shot and killed himself when police arrived at his house as part of a Dateline "To Catch a Predator" sting in November 2006. An attorney for Patricia Conradt and an NBC News spokeswoman told today's (Wednesday) Los Angeles Times that the lawsuit had been "amicably resolved." Last February, U.S. District Judge Denny Chin rejected NBC's effort to throw out the case, saying that the network had "placed itself squarely in the middle of a police operation, pushing the police to engage in tactics that were unnecessary and unwise, solely to generate more dramatic footage for a television show. A reasonable jury could find that by doing so, NBC created a substantial risk of suicide or other harm, and that it engaged in conduct so outrageous and extreme that no civilized society should tolerate it."
