Brandi Barnett and Crystal Martin settled their catfight in federal court last week. Ms. Barnett was the girlfriend of deceased attorney Precious Martin. He was killed in an ATV accident in May 2014 in Ridgeland. Mr. Martin had purchased a $500,000 life insurance policy and stated Ms. Barnett was to be the beneficiary. Mrs. Martin sued the insurance company in U.S. District Court for the insurance policy proceeds. Ms. Barnett sued State Farm and Mrs. Martin.
