The wrongful-death Zahau lawsuit has been dismissed with prejudice. Zahau hanging case “has been resolved,” The man who became the focus of the civil trial, Adam Shacknai – the brother of Zahau’s then-boyfriend, Jonah Shacknai – said outside court that his insurance company “did an end-around” on him, and that the settlement was for far less (“a pittance”) than the $5.1 million jury award.

“They were tired of throwing money at it,” he said. Both he and his lawyer, Seth Weisburst, said Shacknai himself was not paying out any money. The wrongful-death lawsuit going to trial in San Diego would have revisited the 2011 hanging death of Zahau at a mansion on the Coronado peninsula two days after Max Shacknai fell to his death there. The lawsuit was filed by the mother and sister of Zahau, the girlfriend of pharmaceuticals tycoon Jonah Shacknai.
