Accused murderer Steven Avery has settled his civil lawsuit against Manitowoc County. Avery ws asking for 36 million dollars... after being wrongly imprisoned for a 1985 rape he didn't commit.

Another report said they settled for $400,000 nowhere near the $36 million Mr. Avery was asking for. Of that $400,000 Mr. Avery is getting $240,000 and the rest to attorneys and other costs.

With Mr. Avery's continuing legal troubles I am sure lawyers will quickly gobble up the $240,000 that he is getting.
