A judge is dismissing a civil lawsuit filed against a Black Eyed Peas manager who punched blogger Perez Hilton in a nightclub last year.

Attorneys for Hilton and Peas manager Liborio Molina announced in court Tuesday they had reached a settlement agreement. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John S. Wiley agreed to dismiss the case but retained jurisdiction in case the settlement falls apart.

The terms were not discussed and Hilton's attorney, Joshua Blum, declined comment after the hearing.

Molina apologized for punching Hilton last year in a Toronto nightclub as part of an agreement to drop assault charges against the manager. The scuffle happened after the openly gay blogger called Black Eyed Peas' leader will.i.am a slur for homosexuals.
