CBC’s IoannaRoumeliotis reports that Ghomeshi is to pay $18,000 in legal costs incurred by the CBC. The process still needs to be formalized through a court order.
Ghomeshi launched the lawsuit against the CBC last month after he was fired from the broadcaster. CBC sought to have it dismissed, saying it was "without merit and an abuse of the court’s process."
Ghomeshi, 47, is being investigated by Toronto police after three women filed complaints alleging he was physically violent without their consent. He has not been charged with any criminal offence.
The former radio host previously issued a statement denying the allegations against him and saying all acts involving rough sex were consensual.
In his most recent statement, he said he intended to meet the allegations directly and that he doesn't intend to discuss the matter with the media.
CBC hired employment lawyer Janice Rubin to conduct an internal investigation into the allegations against Ghomeshi.
