Possible settlement coming in Comic Con lawsuit

(KUTV) A settlement may be in the works for a lawsuit between San Diego and Salt Lake Comic Cons.

Representatives from both events met to discuss a possible settlement Wednesday.

San Diego Comic Con sued Salt Lake’s in August, claiming the name is too similar to their own. San Diego Comic Con says people may get confused and think the events are affiliated, when they are not.

Organizers of the Salt Lake event claim ‘Comic Con’ is a generic term.
