The NFL has reached a settlement with a youth charity that sued after the league prevented players from taking part due to “Strikes For Kids” utilizing a bowling alley that was part of a casino near Las Vegas in 2015.

The NFL players are forbidden from partaking in promotional or charity events tied to gambling.

USA Today reports that the terms of the settlement were not immediately disclosed.

But the agreement to close the federal court case comes about a week after the charity asked a federal judge to compel NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to testify under oath about the league’s gambling policy.
