DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Attorneys say a Duluth businesswoman who accused her psychotherapist of financial exploitation has settled a lawsuit against the defendant's employer.

The lawyer representing funeral home owner Mary Williams says terms of the plaintiff's settlement with Essentia Health cannot be disclosed. Williams' lawsuit against the psychotherapist continues. She contends that during the course of treatment, the therapist allowed a personal relationship to develop and borrowed more than $100,000 to remodel her house in 2005 and 2006.

The Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/AwUaTp ) says Essentia Health, formerly known as SMDC Corp. and Duluth Clinic, fired the therapist after learning of the relationship.
