A defamation lawsuit against tech news website Techdirt filed by a Massachusetts man who questionably claimed to have invented email in numerous articles has been settled.

Shiva Ayyadurai's attorney, Charles Harder, released a statement earlier in the week noting that no money had changed hands, and wrote that both parties were "pleased to have resolved this matter."

Since 2011, Ayyadurai has put forward his claim that he invented email as a teenager in 1978, and also claims he was the first to use the term "EMAIL."
