The lawsuit over a former communications executive’s $241,000 tab at Scores nightclub has been settled, a lawyer for the topless club said Wednesday.

Donald David, the lawyer who represented Scores in the settlement talks, said the terms of the settlement involving Scores, American Express, Savvis Inc., and former Savvis chief executive Robert McCormick were confidential.

“All I can say at this point is that the parties have amicably resolved their differences,” David said.

McCormick, 40, of Clayton, Mo., resigned after an investigation into the $241,000 that was charged to his corporate American Express card. McCormick and Savvis said the bill at Scores should have been between $18,000 to $19,000.

Savvis and McCormick refused to pay. Then American Express sued Scores, Savvis and McCormick.

David said the settlement was reached “within the past few weeks.”

The lawyer said Scores does not currently accept the American Express card, but “we fully expect to have a business arrangement in the future.”

Lawyers for other parties to the lawsuit did not immediately return calls for comment.
