Hustler Paying Nancy Benoit's Family?

It would appear so according to this ProWrestling.net article.

Hustler magazine must pay $375,000 in compensatory and punitive damages for publishing nude photos of Nancy Benoit following her murder by her husband and WWE wrestler Chris Benoit.

Chris Shore points out something in this article that I thought as well.

I thought this was dead. The last ruling I heard on this was that it was a First Amendment issue and was dead. Color me surprised.

I seem to recall hearing the same thing or something similar at least. I had not idea that there was an ongoing legal issue between Hustler and Nancy's estate.
