The Dodgers sued Lovitz and others last month over nonpayment for the 2010 season seats, which are located behind home plate. In a statement yesterday, the team said it resolved the case "very quickly, very amicably, and to the satisfaction of both parties."
The Dodgers also said Lovitz is a friend and welcome back at the stadium any time.
Attempts to contact Lovitz were unsuccessful.
