SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The federal government has reached an agreement with the owners of a downtown bar to pay about $7.5 million for the social club and the building it occupied.

The Shubrick Building was home to Port O' Call. That building and two other unoccupied buildings west of the Frank E. Moss U.S. Courthouse are to be condemned to make way for a new courthouse.

The $7.5 million payment settles a condemnation suit filed last year by the federal government and cancels a trial scheduled for fall.

Port O' Call closed in February. About 1,100 items from the bar were put up for auction.
