ArtsQuest is paying a former employee $25,000 over a wrongful termination lawsuit -- related to beer mugs.

The lawyer for Rebecca Stoneback says his client has accepted a judgement offer from ArtsQuest.

ArtsQuest's lawyer says it's a money-saving move -- not an admission of liability.

But Stoneback's lawyer disagrees.

Stoneback claimed she was fired for refusing to sell Musikfest beer steins.

She says she found them in a box marked "Made in China" -- not Germany, as advertised.

ArtsQuest maintains the mugs are made in Germany.

A lawsuit filed over that issue remains unresolved.
