SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Carl’s Jr. and Utah-based chain Apollo Burger have settled their lawsuit over bacon cheeseburgers.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2kCQoKw ) that Carl’s Jr. Restaurants LLC filed suit in November accusing Apollo L.C. of infringing on its Western Bacon Cheeseburger trademark. Apollo was serving a burger with the same name, which Carl’s Jr. said was “confusingly similar” to the fast-food chain’s sandwich.

A federal judge on Friday signed court documents in which Apollo Burger admitted to infringing on Carl’s Jr.’s rights and agreed to stop selling the similarly named burger.

Both parties will pay their own attorneys’ fees and costs.
