The distributor of the popular energy drink Red Bull has reached an out-of-court settlement with an Iowa City, Iowa, bar that allegedly advertised cocktails mixed with the drink but used imitation brands instead.

Red Bull North America Inc., sued the Sports Column in May, accusing the downtown sports bar of violating federal trademark protections. The company claimed bartenders mixed cocktails with a similar drink, called Roaring Lion, but led customers to believe Red Bull was used.
