Matt Horn, owner of famed Auckland restaurant Horn Barbecue, has settled a lawsuit brought by former business partner David Kyuman Kim, which claims Kim worked for free and was unfairly kicked out of the business.
Kim’s attorney, executive director of Stanford’s Center for Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies, confirmed to SFGATE that the lawsuit was settled. A representative for Horne also confirmed that the lawsuit was settled, but declined to comment further. Details of the lawsuit were first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle. (SFGATE and the San Francisco Chronicle are both owned by Hearst but operate independently of each other.)
