BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC-TV MyFoxAL.com) -- The lawsuit filed by former Birmingham City Councilman and former Jefferson County Commissioner John Katopodis against HealthSouth ended abruptly Wednesday in a settlement.

The case was settled shortly after noon.  Details of the settlement were not immediately available.

Katopodis claimed HealthSouth owed him some property in the city's Southside. In 2000, Katopodis started a program to give refurbished computers to needy Fairfield school children. Katapodis claimed he and former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy had a verbal agreement that Katapodis would get money and two buildings. HealthSouth says there was no binding agreement. The corporation also alleges misspending in the program.
