AUSTIN, Texas (AP) A former campaign manager to Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst has signed over his 6,000-square foot Austin home to Dewhurst as part of a legal settlement.

Dewhurst's lawsuit, filed in March, accused former campaign manager Kenneth Barfield of stealing more than $2 million in campaign funds.

The Houston Chronicle reported Friday that the settlement between Dewhurst and Barfield was reached in November.

Dewhurst's lawsuit had claimed that Barfield began stealing from campaign funds sometime before 2010.

The home in West Austin is listed for sale at $2.8 million. The final order filed with the court awarded the Dewhurst campaign $3.7 million from Barfield and his related companies. It was unclear if that figure included the home's value.

Dewhurst lost the 2012 Republican U.S. Senate nomination to Ted Cruz.
