AMES, Iowa (AP) - A former Iowa State basketball player’s lawsuit against a woman who accused him of sexual abuse has been settled.

A news release from the Des Moines law firm of Parrish Kruidenier says Bubu Palo’s lawsuit was “resolved to the mutual satisfaction of both parties” on Tuesday. The firm declined to comment further.

Palo had sued the woman and her mother in May 2014, saying his reputation had been damaged.

In July, the Iowa Court of Appeals dismissed an appeal filed by the university, which argued the discipline against Palo was appropriate for his actions toward the female student in 2012. The decision left in place a ruling that threw out the university’s sanctions against Palo and questioned the accuser’s credibility.

Palo had been kicked off the team.
