Dispute involving Ohio River rock officially over

Frankfort, Kentucky (AP) July 2010

A lengthy legal battle between Kentucky and Ohio over who owns a rock pulled from the Ohio River has officially come to a close.

A document filed Thursday in federal court in Ashland dismissed the case based on an agreement reached in April that required the 8-ton boulder to be returned to Kentucky from Ohio.

For generations, Indian Head Rock jutted out of the water on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River. It served as a navigation marker for boaters and a surface for carvings of initials, names and a crude face.

An expedition of Ohioans moved the rock to Portsmouth, Ohio, three years ago.
