Just as it was set to go to trial Thursday, Paso Robles animal sanctuary group Zoo to You reached an out-of-court settlement in a lawsuit over a large debt owed to a donor for more than seven years.
North County couple Tom and Marguerite Nunn sued the nonprofit corporation — known also as Conservation Ambassadors — seeking payback for what they said was an accidental donation of $93,447.
They had asked Zoo to You President David Jackson to return the donation they made in September 2001.
The Nunns, who say they love Zoo to You’s educational mission, meant to send $130.
But Marguerite Nunn said her computer accidentally put her ZIP code in the spot where the dollar amount was supposed to be, causing a check for the much larger amount to be mailed.
