Tattoo artist settles suit over movie

A Missouri tattoo artist has settled his federal lawsuit against Warner Bros. after mediation on Friday.

“Warner Bros. and Mr. Whitmill have amicably resolved their dispute,” Geoff Gerber, an attorney representing plaintiff S. Victor Whitmill, said in an emailed statement. “No other information will be provided.”

Whitmill objected to the use in the movie “The Hangover Part II” of a copy of a tattoo he designed for former heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the settlement, which is not yet reflected in online court documents.

Gerber is with the BrickHouse Law Group in St. Louis. Attorneys with the Chicago office of Schiff Hardin and Mark Sableman of Thompson Coburn in St. Louis are representing Warner Bros.

The case is Whitmill v. Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. 4:11-cv-00752.
