Raped her in her Minneapolis apartment after dinner and drinks with wealthy Chinese officials in 2018, lawyers announced Saturday.
Jingyao Liu denied raping the woman. In a joint statement released Saturday night, attorneys for both sides said:
The incident between Ms. Jingyao Liu and Mr. Richard Liu in Minnesota in 2018 was a misunderstanding. Agreed to settle their legal dispute to avoid further pain and suffering caused by the lawsuit.
Richard Liu was arrested in August 2018 on suspicion of aggravated rape, but prosecutors said the case had "deep evidentiary problems."
Jingyao Liu sued Richard Liu in 2019. He forced himself on her in his car and later raped her in her apartment.
