The lawsuit between Jessica Simpson and Tarrant Apparel Group has been settled.

The Camuto Group, With You Inc., Tarrant Apparel Group and all related parties have amicably resolved their litigation, The Camuto Group said on Thursday. Camuto is the master license owner for Simpson's sportswear apparel lines and With You Inc. is Simpson's holding company that signed the deal with Camuto.

Camuto said, "The parties have agreed that each will move forward separately in an effort to focus on their own brands and have dismissed the legal proceeding in its entirety."

A lawsuit was filed in New York State Supreme Court in April 2006 by Tarrant against Simpson and Camuto for $100 million over Simpson's alleged failure to promote her lines. Camuto counterclaimed against Tarrant, seeking in excess of $100 million for the damages caused by alleged misconduct in breaching and abandoning its contractual obligations under the sublicense for Simpson's sportswear apparel line.

Simpson's product lines that were at issue were the Jessica Simpson and Princy names, JS by Jessica and Sweet Kisses by JS.
