Bogart estate settles suit against furniture firms

LOS ANGELES -- Bogart LLC, the owner of all intellectual property rights of the late film legend Humphrey Bogart, has settled its federal lawsuit against furniture retailers Plummers, Scandinavian Designs, and Dania regarding their unauthorized sale of a furniture line called "Bogart."  The terms of the settlement agreement are confidential.

"We could not be more pleased with the result," stated Robbert de Klerk of Bogart LLC. "We hope that the settlement of this lawsuit sends a clear message that infringements of Humphrey Bogart's name and image do not pay and will be prosecuted."
