Lindsay Lohan has settled a lawsuit filed by three passengers in a car she had driven in a high-speed chase in 2007.

Ronnie Blake, Jakon Sutter and Dante Nigro "are happy to have this all resolved," their attorney, Randall Billington, told E! News Wednesday. "My clients thought [the settlement] was fair."

Details of the settlement were not released.

Lohan allegedly commandeered Nigro's GMC Denali after a Malibu party to chase her former assistant's car, the men said, and then to chase a second woman's car upon losing the first in traffic.

The men's lawsuit alleged false imprisonment, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and assault and battery.

Lohan's attorney, Ed McPherson, told The Associated Press a dismissal notice will be filed in court.

Steve Honig, the actress' spokesman, told Newsday, "We're focused on projects in 2012, not lawsuits from 2007."

Lohan, 25, has been filming the Lifetime telefilm "Liz and Dick," in which she portrays screen legend Elizabeth Taylor.

In May 2011, Lohan's insurance company settled with Tracie Rice, the driver of the second car, TMZ.com reported at the time.

According to the woman's lawsuit, Rice was parking on the street in front of her passenger Michelle Peck's Santa Monica home and believed she was being carjacked when a sport utility vehicle gunned its engine, flashed its high beams and aggressively tried to block Rice's car from escaping.

A 2-mile-long high-speed chase ended at the Santa Monica Police Department, where officers responded with guns drawn and arrested Lohan, who was charged with DUI.
