– The civil lawsuit brought by his victim’s family against jailed Wellington polo mogul John Goodman was quietly dismissed Friday, according to Palm Beach County court papers. The move shows a settlement was reached with the family of 23-year-old Scott Wilson, the motorist killed by Goodman in February 2010. No amount of money is mentioned and lawyers are bound by a confidentiality agreement. But an insider tells Gossip Extra that the record figure of $50 million was discussed! The timing of the settlement, before the sentencing, indicates that Wilson’s mother, Lili, and father, William, could ask the judge for a low prison sentence for Goodman. He is facing up to 30 years in prison at his April 30 sentencing. Goodman was found guilty of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide last months after a nationally-covered trial.
