Printer Friendly, Inc. Announces Settlement of Litigation With Harrah's (HET)., Inc. (Pink Sheets: BBTC), a Minnesota corporation headquartered in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, announced today that its four- year-old litigation with Harrah's Operating Company, Harrah's Southwest, Inc. and certain officers of those companies has been settled.

The litigation concerned a transaction involving an Indian gaming opportunity in Michigan. The settlement agreement calls for its terms to be kept confidential. The Company was required to pay contingent legal fees to Fabyanske, Westra and Hart of Minneapolis, Minnesota as well as bridge financing obligations.

According to Jack Pilger, CEO, "Our Company is very pleased to have this four-year-old litigation finalized. It has been very time consuming and expensive. The Company continues to look forward to the culmination of its agreement with Lakes Entertainment (LACO) calling for the payment of approximately $11 million when the Pokagon Casino opens in New Buffalo, Michigan. The Company is now looking at various options, which may include mergers, acquisitions, or other opportunities that will benefit shareholders. The Company's officers and directors are committed to increasing shareholder value and we have just moved one step closer with this settlement."
