Fla. pizza chain settles with NYPD over its name

NEW YORK (AP) -- Any way you slice it, there's only one NYPD -- and it's not on a menu.

That's what Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne says about the New York Police Department's recent settlement of a trademark dispute with a Florida-based pizzeria chain.

N.Y.P.D. Pizza -- for New York Pizzeria Delicatessen -- must redesign its logo so it doesn't resemble a uniform patch. And it can't open any restaurants in the New York area.

Owner Paul Russo says the legal struggle was tiring. But the Queens native says he's pleased a settlement was reached.
