Woman settles with prying Eye

An Oakland woman has settled her privacy suit against CBS over a “Street Stories” show that followed a crime-victim squad into the woman’s home for a report of alleged wife-beating.

U.S. District Judge Fern Smith tentatively approved the settlement this week between Yolanda Baugh, her daughter and the web.

An April 1992 episode of the newsmag showed a distraught Baugh telling a victim counselor and a police officer that her husband had beaten and kicked her.

Baugh said in her suit that she let the camera crew in after being told they were filming for the district attorney’s office. She said she learned two months later about plans to show the tape on “Street Stories” and complained to the network but was told it was too late to change the program.

Lawyers for both sides said the settlement prohibited them from disclosing its terms.
