Teddy Bear Pools allowed back to the Big E after lawsuit settled

WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Teddy Bear Pools and Spas was welcomed back to the Big E after the lawsuit they filed with the Big E was settled.

Paul Rothschild, attorney for Ted Hebert, the owner of Teddy Bear Pools, told CBS 3 the lawsuit has been dismissed in a peaceful resolution.

After 28 years as a vendor at the festival, Hebert was told last March he was not welcomed back.

Hebert said it was because he appeared at an anti-casino rally that was against Hard Rock International building on the fair grounds.

Court documents showed after the appearance, Hebert received a text message from the head of the Big E stating, "I saw you standing out today, I thought you were going to refrain from that. We talked about relationships. I thought you agreed to stay neutral."

In March, Rothschild said the president of the Big E said Hebert needed to stay quiet or he would not have a spot at the fair.  

That all came to and end on Thursday when the two parties patched things up.

Rothschild said he could not disclose the terms of the agreement.

CBS 3 reached out to Big E officials, but have yet to hear back from them.
