ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ A settlement has been reached in the lawsuit filed against a St. Paul hospital after staff accidentally discarded a woman's stillborn baby in dirty laundry after promising to cremate the remains.

According to Ramsey County District Court documents, Regions Hospital's attorney informed the judge presiding over the case last month that the issue had been settled. The documents included no details about the settlement. Attorneys for both parties declined to comment.

Reports say the baby's mother, Esmeralda Hernandez, filed the lawsuit against Regions in November, alleging reckless interference with a dead body.
Hernandez gave birth to a premature, stillborn son named Jose in April 2013. She accepted the hospital's offer of a dignified cremation, but the baby's body was found at a commercial laundry two weeks later.
