Johnny Depp has settled a lawsuit stemming from an alleged assault involving a crew member on the set of his 2018 crime thriller, City of Lies.

According to court documents reviewed by PEOPLE, Depp and Gregg "Rocky" Brooks, a location manager who worked on set with the actor, reached a settlement just weeks before they were set to go to a civil trial in Los Angeles on July 25.

Because Depp, 59, and Brooks settled the suit Monday, judge Holly J. Fujie agreed to put off the upcoming trial until Jan. 5 next year. Though the filing did not publicly reveal the specific things Depp must do in order to fulfill his end of the agreement, if he complies, the case will be dismissed.

PEOPLE has reached out to Brooks' attorney and Depp's reps for comment.

Brooks then alleged in the complaint that Depp said he'd give him "$100,000 to punch me in the face right now" after Brooks didn't react to the punches. The location manager claimed Depp was eventually removed from the set by his bodyguards.
