(AP) — The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission will receive $3.5 million in a settlement with a rave promoter, bringing to an end a six-year legal fight and corruption scandal.

The civil lawsuit accused promoter Insomniac, its chief executive Pasquale Rotella and others of being involved in a bribery and kickback scheme involving low-balled Coliseum contracts that cost the historic venue millions.

The Los Angeles Times reports the settlement was announced Monday in Superior Court.

A lawyer for Insomniac did not respond to a request for comment. The coliseum commission, a government agency, said the deal is in the best interest of the public.

Insomniac, which has since been acquired by concert giant Live Nation, has not held raves at the Coliseum complex since 2011.
