Times Wire Reports

The estate of the author of "The Godfather" has accepted an offer it couldn't refuse.

Mario Puzo's estate tentatively settled a $1-million suit against Paramount Pictures over profits from "The Godfather: The Game," Puzo estate attorney Bert Fields said.

Paramount did not pay money owed to the Puzo estate under the terms of a settlement from a prior dispute between Puzo and Paramount in 1992, according to the suit. Puzo died in 1999.
