Insurers and individuals who suffered losses in New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle's fatal plane crash in Manhattan in 2006 have agreed to accept $2 million and drop the pursuit of almost $60 million in property and personal injury claims against the estates of Lidle and his flight instructor, a mediator in the case said Tuesday. The claimants accepted the $2 million because Lidle, 34, and the instructor who died with him, Tyler Stanger, 26, each had a $1 million liability policy.
