FILE - This March 19, 2013 file photo shows a performer waving as elephants with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey show walk in front of the Capitol in Washington on their way to the Verizon Center. The parent company of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus says it has received a nearly $16 million settlement from the Humane Society of the United States and other animal-rights groups that filed a frivolous lawsuit against them. The lawsuits in federal court in Washington have dragged on for more than a decade. In 2012, a judge said the case, alleging abusive treatment of elephants, was frivolous and forced the circus' owner, Vienna, Virginia-based Feld Entertainment, to spend millions in legal fees.
