Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich (koo-SIN'-ich) has settled a lawsuit against a Capitol Hill cafeteria over a split tooth he says he suffered when he bit into an olive pit in a sandwich wrap.

Kucinich said Friday the lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount that reflects out-of-pocket costs.

The lawsuit filed in January in Washington had sought $150,000 in damages from companies involved with the Longworth House Office Building cafeteria. It said a consumer would not reasonably expect to find an olive pit in the wrap.

Kucinich says biting into the pit in April 2008 split a tooth down to the bone, caused excruciating pain and required reconfigured bridgework.

One company named in the suit, Compass Group USA Inc., says settlement terms are confidential. The second company did not immediately comment.
