Univision & Donald Trump Settle Litigation


NEW YORK: Donald Trump and Univision Communications Inc. (UCI) have settled their litigation regarding the broadcaster’s decision not to air the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants.

Trump lodged a $500 million lawsuit against the broadcaster. The terms of the settlement that was reached are confidential.

Trump commented: “I have known Univision’s president and CEO, Randy Falco, for more than 20 years and I’m glad we are able to put these differences behind us.”

Falco stated: “I have known Donald Trump for many years in both a personal and professional capacity and we are pleased to settle this matter and move forward.”
