    Lindsay Lohan Settles Up With Passengers From 2007 DUI Ride

    Lindsay Lohan's troublesome 2007 is now that much closer to being a speck in her rearview mirror.

    The actress has reached a settlement in a lawsuit filed against her by three men who were along for the probably pretty surreal ride when she took off from a party and started trailing her assistant—a brief tour of Santa Monica that resulted in her second DUI arrest that year.

    So, what do the plaintiffs get?

    Well, as usual, that information is not being released.

    The details of the settlement will remain private, but Lohan's lawyer confirmed that a deal was in fact reached ahead of their scheduled trial date and a notice of dismissal will be filed with the court.

    Ronnie Blake, Jakon Sutter and Dante Nigro sued the Liz & Dick star in 2008, months after Lohan had cut a plea deal encompassing both this bust and a previous one in May 2007. Among their allegations: false imprisonment, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and assault and battery.

    Randall Billington, the attorney representing the three men, confirms to E! News they have settled this case. Billington received an email from Lindsay's attorney Ed McPherson earlier today with the settlement. 

    "My clients thought it was fair," Billington tells E! News about the settlement offer. "They are happy to have this all resolved."

    E! News has reached out to Lindsay's attorney for comment. 

    Lohan settled another lawsuit last year brought by Tracie Rice, the passenger riding in the starlet's assistant's car when Lohan was following them.

    The L.A. criminal-justice system finally closed its own book on Lohan's ill-advised escapades in '07 just this year when a judge ruled that her term of probation was...wait for it...complete.
