The dueling lawsuits over control of the Orioles and other assets of longtime team owner Peter Angelos are being dropped by the parties, according to a court document.
It says the suits, pitting members of one of Baltimore’s most famous families against one another, are withdrawn and cannot be refiled. It also means the end of a bitter, public feud between Angelos’ sons — one of them aligned with their mother — over a fortune estimated to be worth more than a billion dollars.
The document says John and Louis Angelos and their mother, Georgia, agree “the actions in these consolidated proceedings … and all claims, including all counterclaims and defenses, asserted therein be dismissed with prejudice.”
The four-page document is dated Friday and has been signed electronically by an attorney for each Angelos family member, including a lawyer who the court appointed to represent Peter Angelos’ interests. It was obtained first by The Baltimore Sun and reported on early Monday; it appeared later Monday in the state court system’s online index of legal filings and hearings.
