Stenehjem and other state attorneys general filed the lawsuit alleging the defendants violated state and federal laws by adopting and enforcing minimum advertised price policies.
The case was settled last June, but several appeals delayed distribution of the money.

Exotic dancer claims assault by customer
Fargo police Saturday were investigating a report that an exotic dancer was sexually assaulted after performing a private dance at a south Fargo residence.
The incident reportedly happened about 8:45 p.m. Friday.
The victim claimed she was paid $125 after performing a private dance but the client took back some of the money.
The woman also told police she had been assaulted, according Fargo Police Lt. Valerie Boatright.
