Following the settlement, the Laundries’ lawyer issued a statement to local outlet WFLA Tampa. “Christopher and Roberta Laundrie and I participated in mediation with the Petito family and the civil lawsuit has now been resolved,” Steven said. “The terms of the resolution are confidential, and we look forward to putting this matter behind us.”

The news comes over a year after Joseph and Nichole were awarded a previous settlement after filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Brian’s estate. The complaint, obtained by E! News, alleged that Brian murdered Gabby and as a direct result, her parents “incurred funeral and burial expenses and they have suffered a loss of care and comfort and suffered a loss of probable future companionship, society and comfort.” 

As a result of the Nov. 2022 settlement, Gabby’s parents were awarded $3 million.

“The Petito family lost their daughter, and they were also denied the opportunity to confront her killer,” Patrick Reilly, an attorney for the Petito family, said in a statement to E! News at the time. “No amount of money is sufficient to compensate the Petito family for the loss of their daughter, Gabby, at the hands of Brian Laundrie.”

NBC News and E! News are both part of the NBCUniversal family.
