EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- A three-year dispute over control of a Eugene natural foods company and other assets of a Sikh community was settled with feuding religious and business leaders dropping claims against each other.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/Q68ZNT ) a federal bankruptcy judge approved the settlement Monday.

It calls for transition to new leadership for the East West Tea Company, which packages tea under the Yogi Tea brand.

The tea company is what's left of Golden Temple of Oregon, which built the Peace Cereal and Yogi Tea brands. Golden Temple sold its cereal division to Hearthside Food Solutions in 2010 for $71 million.
