Matt Horn, owner of famed Oakland restaurant Horn Barbecue, has settled a lawsuit brought by former business partner David Kyuman Kim over allegations that Kim worked for free and was wrongfully put out of business.
An attorney for Kim, who is executive director of the Stanford Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity, confirmed to SFGATE that the lawsuit has been settled. A representative for Horn said the lawsuit was settled on October 12 but declined to comment further. Details of the lawsuit were first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.
