The Syndicated Network Television Association and former SNTA President Eugene DeWitt today said they have settled their lawsuit. After he left the organization in August 2003 Mr. DeWitt sued, claiming a breach of his three-year contract. He sought more than $1 million in pay he said was due him for the balance of his contract.

Details of the settlement are confidential, but the parties described the outcome as amicable in a statement. SNTA Chairman of the Board Howard Levy said, “Gene was a major contributor to the success of the SNTA. We appreciate his efforts and wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.”

Mr. DeWitt said of the settlement, “My time at the SNTA was positive. The SNTA’s fortunes improved greatly during my tenure as their president, and I’m proud of that. I’m eager to return to my career as a media manager and strategist.”
