BELLEVILLE (AP) - Wisconsin-based outdoor apparel retailer Duluth Trading Co. has settled a lawsuit from Eagles founding member Don Henley alleging trademark infringement. The musician filed the lawsuit in federal court after the company in October used the pun "Don a Henley and Take it easy" in an advertisement selling a shirt style known as a henley - a play on Henley's name and a title of a popular song by the classic rock band. The Wisconsin State Journal reports court documents filed this week show the Belleville-based company agreed to never again use or imply Henley's name when selling the style of shirt.
