Paris Hilton and Hallmark have settled a lawsuit filed by the socialite, who claimed the company stole a scene from her reality show The Simple Life for a greeting card. (The card apparently included a pun on Hilton’s trademark phrase, “That’s hot.”) The suit was filed in 2007. The case, which made its way to the Court of Appeals last year, was set to go to trial in December, even though Hallmark at first argued free speech should allow them to sell the card.
