This just in. Carlos Sousa, Jr.'s family, who sued SF Zoo over their son's 2007 Christmas Day tiger mauling death, has agreed to a settlement. According to today's release:

The parents of Carlos Sousa, Jr. have reached a mutually agreeable settlement with the San Francisco Zoological Society for an undisclosed amount. The entire settlement will be paid by the Zoological Society's insurance carrier and will result in a dismissal of all parties, including the City and County of San Francisco. As part of the settlement, the San Francisco Zoological Society has agreed to erect and maintain a bench in memory of Carlos Sousa, Jr. at the Zoo.

A bench? Sounds good. But we have to wonder how much they landed with the settlement. Hope it was enough to help the Sousa family gain some closure. If that's at all possible.
