Is Newspaper Court settlement -taxable income?

I have a client that is very close to some celebraties. A very well known newspaper published things they shouldn't have and the client took them to court. I am not sure if the newspaper settled out of court or if he won the case, but he received an amount for damages. Is this taxable income that should be reported on the tax return?
