Amanda Ross estate settles lawsuit with townhome association

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Before the case was to go before a judge on Monday, a settlement has been reached between the estate of Amanda Ross and her former townhouse association.

Former state lawmaker Steve Nunn murdered his former fiance at the Opera House Square Townhomes in 2009.

Nunn, the son of former Gov. Louie B. Nunn, later pleaded guilty to shooting Ross outside her home after the two ended their relationship.

Her estate sued the townhouse association claiming it allowed Nunn access to the gated community, even after she told it she had an emergency protective order against Nunn.

In January, a judge refused to dismiss the suit after attorneys for Opera Square House asked for summary judgment saying the downtown Lexington townhome community was not negligent.

The terms of that settlement reached this week are confidential, according to attorney Lucy Pett who represents the Ross estate.

Nunn is now serving a life sentence at Green River Correctional Facility.

On Monday, the Ross family's wrongful death suit against him is still set to begin. In that case, the Ross family claims Nunn stalked and threatened Ross for months leading up to her murder.
