Brad Stone spoke to "[a] person briefed on the status of dueling lawsuits," and from this person, received word of a settlement.  Although it would help to know exactly who’s involved, Stone’s reputation is quite good, and he added, "[A]ll motions in the case against ConnectU have been terminated."

All lawsuits will get dismissed "within weeks," according to Stone’s source.  Facebook’s been keeping its corporate mouth shut (Facebook Chat aside), but we’ll keep an ear out for dollar figures, should they ever emerge.
