Gropee settles with Arnold

Anna Richardson is the former British late-night TV personality who said that Arnold Schwarzenegger pulled her onto his knee, fondled her and asked if her breasts were real after a December 2000 taping of her show. She sued for libel — under the stricter U.K. laws — after campaign aides blamed her for the encounter in the L.A. Times' pre-recall groping stories in 2003. Today all parties announced a confidential settlement they called "to all parties' satisfaction."
