Sean Avery prevails in libel suit against Howard Berger

The Rangers' Sean Avery won a settlement in his libel case against Toronto radio reporter Howard Berger following mediation earlier this month, Slap Shots has learned. The suit was brought in the aftermath of the pregame incident in Toronto on Nov. 10, 2007, after which Berger alleged that Avery had made comments to Jason Blake relating to the Leaf winger's previously diagnosed cancer. Terms of the settlement are confidential. Avery has at least one more pending suit relating to the incident.

So much has happened since then. Brooks did report Sean was going to sue but you did not hear much about the case.

Berger said a Ranger player told him about Avery's alleged comments about Blake. Avery had an incident with Darcy Tucker in pre-game warmups.
