UPDATE: Nearly two years later, a settlement has been reached in James Woods' defamation lawsuit. According to a clerk for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mel Red Recana, an attorney for the actor announced the settlement in a hearing.
While the terms of the settlement have not been revealed, the anonymous defendant, known by the Twitter handle "Abe List," died before a resolution was reached. Woods originally filed a complaint for defamation and invasion of privacy by false light in 2015 after the Twitter user called the actor a "cocaine addict" online. At the time, he sought $10 million in damages.
