'Sandwich suit' over, says Richards Group

Published on .

A copyright infringement suit alleging Richards Group, Dallas, pirated a "talking ham sandwich" character for use in advertising for the Florida Department of Citrus has been withdrawn and the charges "amicably" settled, Richards said. Richards distributed a statement from the plaintiff, San Francisco-based Tabloid News Services, in which Tabloid said it realized after investigation that Richards' talking ham sandwich had been created independently.
