LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Lou and Juditha Brown, the maternal
grandparents of O.J. Simpson's youngest children, have
settled their differences with the children's guardian over
how to divide the profits from the sale of Nicole Brown
Simpson's diary, photos and other memorabilia, an attorney
for the Browns told CNN.
The guardian for Sidney and Justin Simpson had filed a
petition in probate court asking that the children get the
money that their grandparents collected when they sold
wedding photos, the diary and other items.
Details of an agreement between the Browns and the guardian
have not been revealed, but Brown attorney Gary Ruttenberg
said it means Monday's scheduled court hearing has been
canceled and the petition withdrawn.
The settlement clears the way for estate Nicole Brown Simpson
to be finalized, perhaps by next spring.
