"'PSYCHO' SHRINK SETTLES LAWSUIT

By KIERAN CROWLEY

June 10, 2008 --

The Long Island psychiatrist who allegedly plotted to murder his patients and feed them to sharks settled a malpractice lawsuit against him by a former patient for $365,000 yesterday.

The former patient - identified only as "Dennis" - who shrink Richard Karpf enlisted in his bizarre plot to shoot seven patients, accepted the cash settlement just hours after the jury began deliberating.

"The jury was very kind and concerned about Dennis when we met afterwards," said his lawyer, Ruth Bernstein. "A couple of them expressed fears that the defendant might also come after them."

Karpf, 55, was arrested in January 2003 and charged with buying a pistol, silencer and ammo from an undercover cop who was contacted by Dennis after Karpf asked him during sessions for help in his slay plot. He later pleaded guilty and served three months in prison."
