JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Oscar Pistorius is settling a three-year-old case against a former neighbor over reputation damages in a dispute that has now been overshadowed by the murder charges the Olympic star faces in the Valentine's Day shooting of his girlfriend.
Pistorius' reputation management firm confirmed the plans after the Sunday Tribune first reported the story. Lunice Johnston of Vuma said that the merits in the separate case "are no longer relevant."
The Sunday Tribune said the dispute centered on accusations that Pistorius slammed a door on the former neighbor during a party while the athlete said that the woman was aggressive and injured herself.
Pistorius is free on bail facing murder charges in the shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius says he shot her, mistaking her for an intruder.
