Brothers Larry (left) and Jimmy (right) Flynt were in U.S. District Court in Ohio Jan. 19 for a trial that could determine the future of Hustler, which Jimmy Flynt says belongs as much to him as to his more famous brother.
According to Cincinnati.com, which is covering the trial, the Flynts had a falling out several years ago "after Larry fired Jimmy's two sons, severed ties to his brother and tried to evict him from the Hustler store he runs in downtown Cincinnati." Jimmy apparently responded with a lawsuit claiming he was a full partner in the family business, entitled to half of Hustler's assets.
According to testimony, Larry claims Jimmy was only ever an employee, and not a very good one at that. The trial was expected to last approximately one week.
