Take Two has reached an agreement with Jack Thompson which will restrict the crusading lawyer from suing the publisher's games.

Take Two brought a pre-emptive lawsuit against Thompson last month to stop the lawyer from declaring Grand Theft Auto IV and Manhunt 2 a public nuisance.

According to a report on GamePolitics, Thompson has agreed he will not sue or threaten to restrict sales or distribution of future Take Two titles. The outspoken lawyer will also restrict communication with Take Two via the publisher's legal team.

In return, Take Two has dropped two lawsuits against Thompson, including one over contempt of court during a case built around controversial title Bully.
