LOS ANGELES (AP) - The International House of Pancakes has dropped its legal flap against a Missouri church over their shared initials.
The Glendale-based flapjack chain accused the International House of Prayer in Kansas City over the church's use of the initials on its website and in signs and events at its headquarters. IHOP, the restaurant, argued that might confuse customers and could link the pancake chain with the church.
The chain dismissed its lawsuit last week in federal court in Los Angeles.
IHOP spokesman Patrick Lenow told The Associated Press that the company dismissed the suit because it wanted to resolve the matter amicably.
