RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The publisher of the news site has settled a lawsuit she filed against the Republican Party of Virginia over an alleged copyright infringement.

Roanoke Free Press publisher Valerie Garner reached a settlement last week with the GOP for $9,000 over the party’s use of a picture she took of a Democratic politician that was used on political mailers.
