A Palestinian man who was portrayed as a terrorist in Sacha Baron Cohen's 2009 flick Bruno settled his $110 million lawsuit, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The terms of the lawsuit are confidential, but Ayman Abu Alta's attorney, Joseph Peter Drennan, said the "case is settled to the mutual satisfaction" of everyone involved.

During the movie Sacha plays an Austrian fashion journalist who interviews Ayman, a grocer, but beneath his name on the movie they label him: "Terrorist group leader, Al-Aqsa Martyrs brigade."

Sacha also went on to discuss his character's encounter with a "terrorist" on The David Letterman Show and showed the clip.

In his lawsuit Ayman stated he became the target of death threats and suffered a "loss of reputation."
