Fox News announced on Sunday that it has reached a settlement with Venezuelan businessman Majed Khalil. He claimed he was falsely accused on television of conspiring to manipulate the 2020 U.S. presidential election against Donald Trump.

Khalil sued the network and its former anchor, Lou Dobbs, for defamation, alleging in court documents that they fabricated allegations. He and other Venezuelans were accused of plotting to take the election from the outgoing Republican president.

According to a concise letter delivered to U.S. District Judge Louis Stanton on Saturday in Manhattan, the parties have reached a “confidential agreement to resolve this matter.” The following week, they intend to file a joint stipulation of dismissal.

“The situation has been resolved amicably. There are no more comments at this time “According to a statement released by Fox News on Sunday.

Trump has continued to assert that significant vote fraud was the cause of his 2020 election loss to Democrat Joe Biden, despite having his claims refuted by judges, state governments, and members of his own previous administration.

Jury selection is scheduled to commence on Thursday for the second trial in the $1.6 billion defamation case. filed by Dominion Voting Systems Corp against Fox News and its parent company Fox Corp over their coverage of unfounded allegations of election manipulation.
