Kucinich settles dispute over olive

By: CNN's Rebecca Stewart

Washington (CNN) – Democratic Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich has settled his $150,000 lawsuit against the House cafeteria responsible for serving him with a pitted olive, and along with it, a broken tooth.

Citing the "clamor for information," Kucinich released a detailed account of his dental ordeal complete with descriptions of the split tooth, excruciating pain and "numerous dental visits."

In a letter e-mailed to his campaign listserv and posted on his website, Kucinich explained balking at initial requests for such information stating, "Thought I would prefer to focus your attention on my work dealing with the profoundly important issues that face our nation … Given the degree of public interest you should know some details." He also recounts a reluctance to "trying the case in the media."

According to Kucinich, the pit sparked a chain of events that involved "three dental surgeries," "six replacement teeth" and "a substantial amount of money to rectify."
