A model has settled a lawsuit against a New York City jewelry company for an Internet video in which she writhes and moans suggestively on a bed.

A Manhattan judge filed a notice of the settlement last week.

The model had sued Szul Jewelry Inc. for $5 million. The 37-year-old said she didn't consent to use of her image simulating an orgasm.

The video attracted more than 700,000 hits before being removed in January.

A statement from both parties says the settlement terms are confidential.

A lawyer for the model says his client is "pleased," and Szul says it was a "miscommunication between parties."

The model was allowed to remain anonymous in the lawsuit. She is a married graduate student in elementary education.
