GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Duke University has ended a lawsuit against an insurance company stemming from the three lacrosse players at the school who were falsely accused of rape.

Documents filed Tuesday in US District Court in Greensboro show Duke and the National Union Fire Insurance Co. have agreed to drop all claims and counterclaims in the case. Each side also agrees to pay its own legal costs.

Further information about the agreement hasn’t been made public.

Duke had sued in 2008, saying the insurer wouldn’t cover the costs of the university’s out-of-court settlement with the three players.

The insurance company responded that Duke didn’t tell the company about the settlement, in violation of its contract.
