Los Angeles — Coudert Brothers of New York and Los Angeles’ Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, together with commercial litigator Ron Goldie, are paying nearly $1 million to settle a suit for alleged malicious prosecution, according to lawyer-plaintiff J. Michael Flanagan.

Goldie and Coudert’s lead defense counsel, Jeffrey Tidus, confirmed there is a settlement but not the amount. “I can tell you my portion is pennies, and the law firms are paying for me,” said Goldie, formerly a partner with Coudert and with Stroock, and now with L.A.-based Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp. “I know I did nothing wrong. I don’t think the law firms did anything wrong.”
