Lawyers Nash, who was mauled by a chimpanzee in Connecticut, have agreed to settle a lawsuit against the estate of the primate's now-dead owner. Nash's family filed the lawsuit in 2009 in state Superior Court seeking $50 million in damages from chimp owner Sandra Herold, who died in 2010. Nash was blinded, lost both hands and underwent a face transplant after being mauled outside Herold's Stamford home in February 2009. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill)
