Frosch Travel’s lawsuit against Your Travel Center (YTC) and its CEO, Colin Weatherhead, has been settled.

On Friday, a stipulation of voluntary dismissal with prejudice was filed in U.S. District Court in California, stating that the case was dismissed and each party will cover its costs and attorney fees.

The lawsuit, filed in February 2015, had alleged a breach of contract between Frosch and YTC. The contract would have resulted in YTC reporting its airline sales to ARC through Frosch, and would have stipulated Frosch as the eventual buyer of YTC, according to the lawsuit. At the time the contract was signed, according to the lawsuit, YTC was operating under an agreement with Tzell Travel Group.

Late last year, Frosch filed a motion to add Tzell and its CEO, Barry Liben, as defendants in the lawsuit. The suit alleged Liben bullied Weatherhead after learning of YTC’s intention to stop reporting ARC airline sales through Tzell and instead enter into a binding agreement with Frosch.

Tzell and Liben are not listed on the stipulation of voluntary dismissal, but that was because the motion to add them as defendants had not yet been argued at the time of settlement, according to Michael Rella, an attorney with Murphy & McGonigle representing Frosch.

“Right now, the case has been dismissed,” Rella said, including the claims against Liben and Tzell.

He said he could not release the terms of the settlement as it included a confidentiality agreement.

“Frosch and YTC have reached an amicable resolution and are pleased to be working together going forward,” Rella said on behalf of his client.

Tzell declined to comment on the settlement and YTC did not immediately answer a request for comment.
