Horatio Sanz on Nov. 23 settled a sexual assault lawsuit filed by a former "SNL" fan.
"Jane Doe" accused Sanz of grooming her since she was 15 and sexually assaulting her at a party in 2002.
The law firm that represents Doe told Insider Monday that "the parties have settled their dispute."
Horatio Sanz last week settled a lawsuit filed by an anonymous woman who accused the Saturday Night Live alum of grooming her for sexual abuse since she was a 15-year-old fan.

The woman — identified as "Jane Doe" in court documents — said in her lawsuit that Sanz began grooming her after meeting her through an "SNL" fan website. Doe claimed the grooming culminated in Sanz sexually assaulting her in May 2002 at an "SNL" after-party in front of several cast members.
Sanz denied the allegations when Doe first filed the lawsuit in August 2021.
According to a Nov. 23 court filing in the New York Supreme Court, the parties have agreed that the lawsuit should be "dismissed with prejudice," meaning Doe cannot file the same lawsuit again in the same court. It also stipulates that costs and attorneys' fees will not be paid by one party to another party.
The filing was signed by attorneys representing Sanz, Doe and NBCUniversal, who were named co-defendants in the case.
Doe was represented by Susan K. Crummiler of the feminist law firm Crummiler P.C. Jacob Eidinger. A spokesman for the firm confirmed to Insider on Monday that "the parties have settled their dispute and have moved on." Details of the settlement were not disclosed.
Steve Silverberg, an attorney for Sanz, declined to comment when reached by Insider Monday. NBC's attorneys did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment Monday.

In her lawsuit, she accused Sanz of sexual harassment, sexual assault and assault, and violating the NYC Victims of Gender-Based Violence Act.

Doe accused Sanz of sexually abusing her at an "SNL" afterparty in 2002
Doe said Sanz began grooming her after first meeting her in person in January 2000 when Doe was 15 years old.
Over the next two years, she said, they became closer as she regularly traveled to New York City to watch "SNL" broadcasts and attend after-parties, where she says she was served alcohol as an underage . She said they also began communicating online, and Doe claimed Sanz repeatedly asked her to send him sexualized pictures of herself.
The most harrowing incident Doe describes in the lawsuit centers on an "SNL" after-party that took place in May 2002 when Doe was 17 years old.

There, Doe said Sanz made out with her on a couch in the middle of the apartment and rubbed her vagina all over her clothes while she was "very drunk." Doe said she repeatedly asked Sanz to quit, to no avail.
"In a moment that felt like her worst nightmare, Jane looked up to see the majority of the SNL cast staring at her," the lawsuit reads.
"Suddenly, Sanz grabbed Jane's breasts and lifted them out of her shirt from behind, exposing them to everyone at the party except for his hands," the lawsuit added.
Doe said Sanz continued to attempt to sexually assault her in a cab to Penn Station, where she eventually caught a train back to her Pennsylvania home.
Immediately after the incident, Doe said she stopped updating her fan website. She says the sexual abuse she suffered led her to experience "shame" and "depression," and to commit "self-harm" and use "dissociation drugs."
She said she was hospitalized in 2005 "as a direct and immediate result of the ongoing intense shame and harm suffered by the plaintiff as a result of Sanz's sexual conduct."
After a chance encounter in 2019, Doe said Sanz texted her to apologize for his behavior towards her as a teenager.
"It was a bloody big mistake. I am very sorry. If you want to meet me, you have every right. Just believe I'm not like that anymore," she said, he wrote to her.
