LOUISVILLE, Ky., (WDRB) -- A federal copyright infringement lawsuit filed in January against Kentucky Sports Radio and its co-owners has been dismissed after both sides reached an agreement.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of photographer Andrew Shurtleff on Jan. 31 in U.S. District Court in Lexington, claimed KSR and co-owners Matt Jones and Andrew Jefferson used several of his pictures of high school players at basketball camps on their website without permission and refused to remove them.

The suit was dismissed Tuesday and both sides were ordered to pay their own expenses.

In a statement on KSR on Tuesday night, Jones said that after “discussions between the two parties, the matter has been resolved and the two parties have come to an agreement on the dispute. Mr. Shurtleff has agreed to dismiss the suit, and KSR hopes to use Mr. Shurtleff’s services in the future.”

Griffin Terry Sumner, an attorney who represents Kentucky Sports Radio, said the she had no comment outside of Jones’ statement.

An attorney for Shurtleff declined to comment.
