The suits were filed in late 1997, after the company was rocked by allegations over advisory fees paid to then-chairman Gary Siegler (SCAN 12/17/97). Under the terms of the settlement, the plaintiffs in the suits will receive $2.75 million in insurance proceeds and $5.25 million in corporate notes. The agreement is expected to be approved by March.
