Long legal battle over lavish lake home ends with a court settlement

It's been a strange tale, the contentions between two big high-rollers over sprawling Lake Coeur d'Alene lake home.

The battle seems to have finally ended, with an announcement last week that the two men, Denny Ryerson and Dana Martin, have agreed to a settlement.

The summary of the settlement appeared in Saturday's Spokesman-Review.

We had to follow this tale from start to finish, from the first hints that Ryerson's business decline put him in danger of losing his multimillion lake mansion on Mica Bay, intended to be his dream retirement home, to the final blasts of legal crossfire over thousands of items pulled from the house after Martin acquired it in a bankruptcy sale.

It's over. Thank you very much.
