SETTLEMENT LEAVES GATES A LITTLE BIT LESS WEALTHY

The nation's richest man is a little poorer.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates reached an out-of-court settlement with a Seattle TV reporter who was arrested while covering Gates' wedding on the Hawaiian island of Lanai last January.The amount of money Scott Rensberger received was not disclosed, but the settlement included a donation of 40 computers worth $67,000 to Lanai High School, said Rensberger's attorney, Mark Davis. In addition, Gates and Dole Food Co., which owns the island, will write letters of apology.
