Settlement reached in Destiny's Child lawsuit

December 8, 2009 (CHICAGO) Rickey Allen claimed that the song "Cater 2 U," that was on the group's 2004 album, was actually his song.

He filed the lawsuit three years ago and a judge ruled that it would go to trial.

Beyonce was expected to testify but did not because the settlement was reached.

Allen's attorney tells ABC7 that the lawsuit has been dismissed.
