Video game publisher Electronic Arts Inc. said Tuesday it will pay $14.9 million to former and current computer programmers to settle a California class action lawsuit seeking overtime compensation.

The settlement of the suit, which was filed in February 2005, resolves the last of two legal challenges EA faced regarding the alleged avoidance of overtime pay. A similar lawsuit filed in 2004 on behalf of graphic artists was settled last fall when EA made a $15.6 million payment.
