Update on Berk-Rubinger Deka Dispute

I am informed by one "J. Ramirez" (no idea who that is, he or she did not say) that the Berk-Rubinger dispute over the return of money for an Athenian dekadrachm is over and they have:
"the Court Order dismissing the case and a copy of the Settlement Agreement. You will note in paragraphs 7 & 8 the plaintiff’s acknowledgment that, in fact, neither Steve Rubinger nor Antiqua, Inc. committed any fraud, as had originally and wrongly been alleged [in the press]".
So according to Mr Ramirez, Berk's now saying the coin is real?  I see it's hard to make your mind up when you do not know all the facts about where a dugup actually came from, leaving the question of "authenticity" very much in the eye of the beholder. So which deka is this, and where did Mr Rubinger get it from?

Jennifer, can you send them to Rick St Hilaire? He'll do a fair write-up I am sure and I'll link to that.
