The family of Brett Walrath will not take Outback Steakhouse to trial.

The two sides have reached a confidential settlement. The Walrath family was suing the restaurant for $32 million, accusing Outback of overserving Callie Long, the night she hit Brett Walrath in 2003.

In April, a Lubbock Judge sentenced Long to two years in prison for intoxication manslaughter in Walrath's death. The prosecution wants to try Long on a failure to stop and render aid charge.

Meanwhile, Long remains out on bond until her appeal is heard in June.
