MONROEVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A federal judge has ended the lawsuit filed by "To Kill a Mockingbird" author Harper Lee against a museum in her hometown in south Alabama.

The judge dismissed the case Thursday after lawyers for Lee and the Monroe County Heritage Museum filed a joint motion seeking to end the suit.

The move comes two weeks after the judge reinstated the lawsuit at the request of the 88-year-old author from Monroeville, Alabama.

Lee filed suit last year accusing the museum of taking advantage of her work by selling souvenirs and using the title of her only published book as its website address.

The author and the museum settled the case in February, but the agreement was never signed.

Court records don't disclose settlement terms, but the museum changed its Web address.
