NEW YORK — Marty Staff and Joseph Abboud could settle their hotly contested trademark dispute out of court, according to a source close to the case who said the sides were holding “ongoing discussions.”
The negotiations, which began last week and continued at presstime, follow three days of combative testimony during which both Staff and Abboud drew blood defending their claims to the latter’s name. But on Friday, Feb. 22, Judge Theodore Katz called recess—testimony is scheduled to resume March 10—and recommended the former business partners use the time to hammer out a compromise.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
