NAPLES, Fla., Aug. 23 (UPI) -- The son of Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson has agreed to settle his lawsuit against the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Naples, Fla., attorneys say.

While attorneys did not offer details, an attorney for Lifeson, who's real name is Alex Zivojinovich, confirmed the lawsuit has ended with a confidential settlement, the Naples (Fla.) Daily News reported Friday.

"It's resolved. Everything is confidential," Michael R.N. McDonnell said after U.S. District Judge John E. Steele dismissed the lawsuit this week in light of the settlement.

Justin Zivojinovich, Lifeson's son, had sued the hotel over a 2003 New Year's Eve incident in which he and his rock 'n' roll father had been forcibly removed from the hotel.

He alleged that while Collier County sheriff's deputies attempted to remove the pair from the party, they were repeatedly punched and hit with stun guns.

U.S. District Judge Paul A. Magnuson's ruling in a related 2007 lawsuit cleared three deputies of any wrongdoing, the Daily News reported.
