WASHINGTON (AP) - Harbinger Capital Partners has settled a fight with Asarco over access to the mining company's financial records.
The agreement could open the way for the hedge fund to finance Asarco's exit from bankruptcy protection.
Details are in papers filed this week in bankruptcy court in Corpus Christi.
Asarco says it has changed the terms of a confidentiality agreement that potential investors are required to sign."
