The Kansas City Star and the owners of RiseUp, a short-lived magazine on race relations, have agreed to a settlement in a dispute over fees owed to The Star..
In 2008 The Star contracted to print several weekly issues of RiseUp. But the magazine ceased publication, and The Star said it was owed $2.2 million.
Two months ago, The Star won a judgment in Ray County Circuit Court against RiseUp owners Janice S. Ellis and E. Frank Ellis, the principals of Ellis Management Marketing Group.
The court awarded The Star $2.4 million, including legal fees.
In a court filing Friday, The Star accepted a settlement with the Ellises. The terms were not disclosed.
