Reports that the lawsuit has reached its conclusion are inaccurate. He is what he had to say:
"... TYR's dispute with Erik Vendt has always been about Mr. Vendt's demand to be paid for wearing a competitor's suit. TYR has always been willing to drop its claims against Mr. Vendt, and has made several offers--both before and after the lawsuit was filed--to settle on that basis. Mr. Vendt has declined to accept TYR's offers and continues to demand to be paid for wearing a competitive product. Judge Selna's ruling does not address or affect Mr. Vendt's monetary demand. TYR continues to believe in the merits of its position on that issue. ..."Hence, the case moves forward with TYR defending the idea that they should not have to pay an athlete who wears a direct competitor swimsuit while under contract.
