The Western Australian Treasurer Troy Buswell has reached a settlement with former lover Adele Carles over defamatory comments the former Greens MP made about him.
Mr Buswell sued Ms Carles over claims she made in the media about his behaviour.
He launched legal action in December 2012, stating Ms Carles had defamed him by making comments about his behaviour at a party in the home of Perth businessman Nigel Satterley.
The confidential out of court settlement includes a written apology from Ms Carles to Mr Buswell.
Ms Carles has also given a written apology to several Perth businessmen, including Mr Satterley and Nick Kailis.
Ms Carles couldn’t be reached for comment.
