Attorney: Ledger drug tape case over

LOS ANGELES - The legal battle over a video that purportedly shows Heath Ledger doing drugs two years before his death has ended, an attorney said Tuesday.

Neville Johnson, an attorney for the former People magazine freelancer who briefly appears on the tape and later sued to get it destroyed, did not disclose terms of the arrangement. He would only say, 'The matter has been resolved.'

Johnson filed the lawsuit in April on behalf of the reporter, identified only as Jane Doe.

An attorney for Splash News & Picture Agency, the paparazzi firm that surreptitiously shot Ledger in the freelancer's hotel room in 2006, said Tuesday he could not comment.

The video surfaced after Ledger's death last January. 'Entertainment Tonight' had plans to air part of the footage and showed a teaser, but backed off after receiving pressure from stars and publicists.
