LOS ANGELES — Ailing 95-year-old media mogul Sumner Redstone has settled a series of lawsuits with an ex-girlfriend days before a trial was to begin.

Redstone’s attorney, Robert Klieger, said Tuesday that Manuela Herzer will return $3.25 million Redstone had given her and relinquish any claim on his estate.
