Twist settles for $5-million
After seeing his first award of $24.5 million tossed out, and a subsequent one of $15 million upheld, former St. Louis Blues enforcer Tony Twist has settled for $5 million in a suit over his depiction in a comic strip.
The settlement between Twist and insurance companies for Todd McFarlane Productions Inc. was approved in bankruptcy court in Arizona...
The litigation began when McFarlane, creator of the comic series "Spawn," used Twist's name for a violent, mob boss character. The first jury award came in 2000.
