Settlements have resolved a Louisiana recording company's trademark claims against two T-shirt vendors and a restaurant over rights to the phrase ''Who Dat?''

The phrase is part of a popular chant among New Orleans Saints fans.

Who Dat? Inc. accused Storyville Apparel, Monogram Express and Who Dat Yat Chat restaurant of violating its trademark.

The T-shirt vendors and the restaurant argued ''Who Dat?'' is a generic phrase.

Darleen Jacobs says the settlement allows her to use Who Dat Yat Chat as the name of a restaurant she plans to open. Who Dat? Inc. also will pay her $3,000 to cover court costs.

Mark Andrews, a lawyer for the T-shirt vendors, said terms of their settlement are confidential. However, he says his clients intend to continue selling T-shirts with the phrase.
