A Flint-area restaurant chain is suing a man for using its name for a Twitter account.
A lawsuit filed in February says William Leoni III started using the Twitter handle @haloburger in 2009 because he was fond of the restaurant and the Flint area.
Halo Burger says Leoni refused to give up the name without compensation.
According to a response in the case, Leoni's lawyers argue Twitter names are a "first come, first served basis" and a three-year statute of limitations has run out.
Halo Burger's lawyer Michael Rizik says the two parties are in the process of resolving the lawsuit.
