NEW YORK: Paris Hilton is trying to make peace in her legal battle in NewYork City with an Italian lingerie maker. 

The socialite appeared in federal court in Manhattan on Monday for closed-door settlement talks in a lawsuit brought by Le Bonitas.

Both sides left court without announcing a settlement.
