Cincinnati - The estranged brother of Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt is suing him in Ohio for $20m, saying he was wrongly fired from his job at Flynt's pornography company.
Jimmy Flynt says his brother stopped paying him his $250 000 annual salary in 2009 as part of an effort to squeeze him out of the business.
Larry Flynt's publicist declined to comment on Monday.
Jimmy Flynt is seeking at least $20m in compensation and damages in the federal lawsuit filed last week in Cincinnati.
In May, a federal judge ruled that Larry Flynt is the sole owner of his pornography company and his brother isn't entitled to half the business. The judge said Jimmy Flynt provided no evidence he was ever a partner in the business.
