DJ AM, a.k.a. Adam Goldstein, was found dead in Manhattan Aug. 28. He was 36 years old. The disc jockey narrowly escaped death in 2008 when he survived a small plane crash in South Carolina.
DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, died in August in New York of an accidental overdose. Attorneys later amended the lawsuit to include a wrongful death claim.
He had been seeking $20 million in damages, but a jury would have had to approve that amount.
Terms of the settlement were not revealed and Goldstein's attorney, Brian Panish, did not immediately return a call seeking comment. The resolution was first reported Thursday by celebrity Web site TMZ.
