Actor John Ritter's family has reached a settlement with officials at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in California after suing the medics there for wrongful death and medical malpractice.

Ritter died in the hospital in 2003 after collapsing on the set of his sitcom Eight Simple Rules. His wife Amy Yasbeck and son Jason Ritter maintained the actor's life would have been saved had it not been for some costly mistakes.

A court hearing, which is expected to end the legal dispute, will take place tomorrow.
