Altice USA, Dolan family settle lawsuit

Altice USA and the Dolan family have reached a settlement in the family's lawsuit over layoffs at News 12 Networks.

The deal was reached last week, according to a court filing.

A trial was scheduled to begin Wednesday.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

The Dolans were Cablevision's controlling shareholders when they sold the company to Altice in 2016.

Altice USA is the parent company of News 12 Networks.
