Rogue 24's R.J. Cooper and his wife and business partner, Judith, are being sued by frequent restaurant investor Hilda Staples, Tim Carman reports. The suit hinges on whether $300,000 given to the chef to open the restaurant was a gift or a loan. Neither party is discussing the case, which is making its way through the courts. Cooper has also settled another lawsuit filed by Oregon Brewing — the chef will change Rogue 24's logo to avoid any possible confusion with Rogue Ales, reports The Washington Post. [WaPo]
