Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Three dozen franchise owners in Allegheny, Beaver, Lawrence and Westmoreland counties have apparently settled their racketeering lawsuit against Denver-based Quiznos.

U.S. District Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan on Friday approved a motion to dismiss the case. The motion doesn’t provide details of a settlement.

Lawyers for both sides and a company spokesman couldn’t be reached for comment.

The owners of the local restaurants claimed in a 2008 class-action lawsuit that the company engages in business practices that generate profits for the company while driving the local franchises into bankruptcy.
