Original Pontillo's to Reopen in Batavia

According to a story on the Batavia Daily News Online site, the original Pontillo's in Batavia is set to reopen next Monday. Started in 1947, it's probably one of the oldest pizzerias in Western New York, at least one of the oldest that's still in the same location.
That's the good news. The bad news is that, according to the story, there's a Pontillo family feud brewing, including, yes, a lawsuit. That lawsuit is over money and doesn't appear to directly concern the Batavia place, but from the sound of it, there may be legal battles ahead over the use of the Pontillo's name.
Guys, guys. Sit down, have a pizza, and work it out. Life's too short.
