Porn publisher Larry Flynt sued by brother

    CINCINNATI (AP) - Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt is accused in a lawsuit of trying to force his brother out of the family's pornography business.

 Jimmy Flynt says his famous brother wants to evict him from a Hustler retail store in downtown Cincinnati in retaliation for refusing to give a $400,000 loan to Larry Flynt Productions.

 In the lawsuit filed Friday in Ohio, Jimmy Flynt says the eviction notice is also an attempt by Larry Flynt to get leverage in a separate trademark lawsuit in California. In that case, Larry Flynt has sued his brother's two sons for selling their own line of adult movies under the family name.

 Jimmy Flynt is asking a Cincinnati judge for a temporary restraining order that would stop the eviction, along with punitive damages against Larry Flynt of at least $25,000.
