SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Former Spurs therapist Hillary Cauthen has settled with the team and Josh Primo in her lawsuit alleging the former player exposed herself to her multiple times, her attorney confirmed Thursday.

“The parties have agreed to resolve this matter,” Tony Buzbee said in a text message to the Express-News.

TMZ.com was the first to report the settlement.

Buzbee had no further comment. In a lawsuit filed Nov. 3 in Bexar County District Court, Cauthen said 19-year-old Primo exposed his genitals to her nine times. The lawsuit says that in January Cauthen told Spurs general manager Brian Wright about Primo’s behavior and that team leaders minimized it and eventually forced her to leave.

“The organization I worked for has let me down,” a tearful Cauthen said Thursday at a news conference at her lawyer’s office in Houston. “It took Spurs 10 months to do the right thing – that’s too long.”
