Patricia Cornwell Settles Lawsuit Against Financial Advisers

BOSTON (AP) — Patricia Cornwell has settled a lawsuit against her former business managers, avoiding a second trial for a case that dates to 2009.

The author had claimed the New York accounting firm Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP was negligent in handling her finances and cost her millions in losses or unaccounted-for revenue. A federal jury awarded the author $51 million in 2013, but a judge reversed the decision.

An appeals court last year granted Cornwell a new trial. The case was dismissed Tuesday after the sides reached a settlement.

Cornwell is best known for her series of novels featuring Kay Scarpetta, a character inspired by a Richmond medical examiner.

She declined to comment through a spokeswoman and didn’t detail the settlement. An Anchin spokesman could not immediately be reached.
