Lawyers for a woman mauled by a chimpanzee in Connecticut have agreed to settle a lawsuit against the estate of the primate's now-dead owner, but there's a dispute over the final details.
Attack victim Charla Nash's family filed the lawsuit in 2009 in state Superior Court seeking $50 million in damages from chimp owner Sandra Herold, who died in 2010. Nash was blinded, lost both hands and underwent a face transplant after being mauled outside Herold's home in Stamford in February 2009.
A court document obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday shows lawyers for Nash's family this week accused lawyers for Herold's estate of failing to provide information needed to complete the settlement. Details of the deal weren't available. Lawyers in the case didn't immediately return messages Thursday.
