--Ben & Jerry's and its parent company Unilever PLC's talks to reach an out-of-court agreement on a dispute over the sale of its Israeli business to a licensee have broken down, sending the issue back to a federal judge, Reuters reports, citing an unnamed source.

--The talks didn't work out because the ice-cream maker doesn't want to "cave" on its social mission and stance on Palestinian human rights, according to Reuters, citing a source.
