A $750 million defamation suit filed by Burke Ramsey against producers and participants in the 2016 CBS documentary”The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey” triggered a battle over subpoenas by lawyers on both sides in Boulder courts.

“The parties have reached an amicable resolution of their differences and will have no further comment,” said a statement attributed to spokesperson for producers of the program, “The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey,” which aired in September 2016.

The statement added that no other information would be forthcoming.

James Stewart, an Ann Arbor, Mich.-based attorney representing CBS, declined comment when reached at his office.

According to Burke Ramsey’s lawsuit, which was filed in December 2016 in the Circuit Court for Wayne County, Mich., the gist of the documentary was “that Burke Ramsey killed his six-year-old sister,” and that such a claim is “false and defamatory per se” and “Burke Ramsey did not kill his sister and had no involvement in her brutal murder.”
