NBC, Plaintiff Settle "To Catch a Predator" Lawsuit; Program's Future In Doubt

NBC and Patricia Conradt have settled a lawsuit over the death of Ms. Conradt's brother Louis, who killed himself after he was accused of engaging in "sexually explicit" conversations with an adult who posed as a child for the NBC program "To Catch a Predator." The judge in charge of the case had determined that Ms. Conradt's lawsuit presented enough facts to make it possible for a factfinder to determine that the suicide was foreseeable, and directed the case to go forward. It's not clear whether the program "To Catch a Predator" will return in the fall.
