According to City News Service, Elizabeth Dickson’s attorney told a judge that the case was resolved. Terms weren’t disclosed.

Dickson’s battery and negligence suit said she was helping host the Playboy Golf Finals in the city of Industry three years ago when she agreed to be photographed with Kevin Klein, co-host of a Playboy radio show.

The photo was supposed to show Klein poised to hit a teed-up golf ball from Dickson’s buttocks.

But Dickson claims Klein unexpectedly swung the club and hit her.

An email to a Playboy spokeswoman seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned.
