MIAMI (AP) — Pop star Justin Bieber has settled a lawsuit in which a judge threatened the singer with arrest if he didn’t appear for a deposition.

Miami attorney Mark DiCowden said Monday in an email that photographer Manuel Munoz’s lawsuit against Bieber was resolved. Terms of the settlement are confidential.

A judge last month ordered Bieber to sit down for a deposition or be arrested and brought to court after DiCowden contended that a celebrity should not get special treatment. But now the case is over.

Munoz claimed in the lawsuit he was assaulted by one of the singer’s bodyguards two years ago in Miami Beach. He sought unspecified damages.

Bieber’s attorney did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Bieber is currently on tour in Europe.
