FARGO — Forum Communications Co., which owns The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead, has reached a settlement in a federal lawsuit it brought against a book author and the book's publisher for using copyrighted photographs of NFL quarterback Carson Wentz.

The suit claimed the book, "Carson Wentz: a Beacon Biography," written by Peter DiPrimio and published by Purple Toad Publishing Inc., used two original photos of Wentz, a quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles and a former North Dakota State University football standout, that are owned by Forum Communications.

The suit asked that the defendants be stopped from using the images, and it sought unspecified damages.

Now, a stipulation of dismissal with prejudice has been filed in the case.
