HAMILTON, STORE SETTLE SUIT

George Hamilton has settled a lawsuit filed by owners of a wine and cigar store who claim the actor broke an agreement that allowed his name to be used to sell stogies.

Terms of the settlement, announced Friday, were not disclosed.

Hamilton lent his name to the Wine Merchant in 1995 in exchange for a share of the Beverly Hills store's profits. But the relationship soured, and the store sued unsuccessfully last year to bar the actor from opening Hamilton's Humidor, a competing establishment in Pasadena. The Wine Merchant claimed in its lawsuit that it had rights to Hamilton's name.
