MONTREAL — Lawyers say the Quebec Bar association and its president have reached a settlement agreement in the court battle over her suspension.
Lawyers for Lu Chan Khuong did not disclose details of the agreement, but said both parties would issue a joint statement on Tuesday.
Khuong was suspended July 1 after it was revealed in the media she had been the subject of a shoplifting complaint in April 2014 at a clothing store.
She was never charged in connection with the incident, and the matter was dealt with non-judicially at the time.
Khuong was seeking $95,000 in damages from nine members of the association’s administration.
Those members in turn filed a $90,000 lawsuit against Khuong for allegedly damaging their reputation.
