MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The federal receiver overseeing two Vermont ski resorts after their owner was accused of massive fraud involving foreign investors’ money has reached a proposed $1.75 million settlement with People’s United Bank.

The bank was accused of misappropriating investor funds. A final approval hearing is scheduled for July 1. According to a notice from receiver Michael Goldberg, the settlement is between a group of investors that filed a complaint in federal court, the receiver and the bank.

It settles all claims that were and could have been asserted against the bank by the investors and receiver.
