Dominion Voting Systems agreed to settle its billion dollar defamation lawsuit against Fox News Tuesday, ending what had promised to be a high-stakes trial before it began.

One day after the trial was originally scheduled to begin, Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric Davis informed jurors, who had been sworn in only hours earlier, that “The parties have resolved their case.”

“Your presence here … was extremely important,” Davis told the jury. “And without you, the parties would not have been able to resolve the situation.”

At a press conference outside the courthouse, attorneys for Dominion said they’d reached an agreement with Fox’s lawyers to settle the suit for $787.5 million — less than the $1.6 billion in damages Dominion had been seeking.

“The truth matters,” Dominion lawyer Justin Nelson said in a news conference outside the courthouse after the announcement. “Lies have consequences.”
