Dangerfield's widow settles video lawsuit

LOS ANGELES, CA The permanent injunction settles a lawsuit filed last year by Dangerfield's widow against producer David Permut. Lawyers for Joan Dangerfield filed the court papers in the case Tuesday.

Joan Dangerfield sued Permut after he allegedly showed video of her husband to two writers and was planning on editing the 200 hours of footage into a documentary called "Respect."

The comedian, whose catchphrase was "I don't get no respect," died in October 2004 at age 82.

Attorneys for both parties declined to comment, saying the other terms of the settlement are confidential.
