According to the lawsuit, the Monroe County Heritage Museum in Monroeville sold souvenirs, such as clothing and drink coasters, using Lee's name and the title of her Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill A Mockingbird.
According to BBC News, the museum had also used the book title as a website address. Lee was never compensated financially for the use of her name and book title on the souvenirs or the website.
The museum changed its address from tokillamockingbird.com to monroecountymuseum.org, The New York Times reports.
An attorney for Ms. Lee filed a motion in federal court in Mobile Tuesday saying Lee had reached an undisclosed agreement with the museum, The Associated Press reports.
Neither Lee's lawyer or the lawyer for the museum have responded to requests for comment.
The Monroe County Heritage Museum is located in the courthouse which inspired To Kill A Mockingbird, BBC News notes.
