Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt has sued two of his nephews for selling their own line of adult movies under the same family name. Flynt accuses the nephews of producing pornographic films that are "inferior products" and "knockoff goods." Flynt says he filed the lawsuit Monday in US District Court in Los Angeles to protect his family name in the industry, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday. Jimmy Flynt II and Dustin Flynt worked for their uncle for more than a decade before he fired them about a year ago. The brothers said they are trying to break into the business and have a right to use their family name. Larry Flynt said he fired his nephews for being unproductive and gave them a severance package of $100,000 that they used to start a competing company.
