A restaurant owner and phone book company have settled a lawsuit over the placement of a listing for the Montana restaurant in the "Animal Carcass Removal" section of the yellow pages.

Restaurant owner Hunter Lacey's lawsuit claims the Dex Media Inc. phone book salesman deliberately published the free listing under the "Animal Carcass Removal" section after he refused to buy an advertisement in the phone book.
