Clinton and the Black Eyed Peas have settled a federal lawsuit in which the funk pioneer claimed the pop group used his music without proper permission. The settlement announcement on May 14, 2012, came a few weeks before the two sides were to go to trial, but after a judge limited the amount of damages Clinton would have been eligible to receive.
