WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Anti-abortion leader Randall Terry is bringing his legal battle over ownership of the name Operation Rescue to Wichita.

Terry became a national leader of the anti-abortion movement in the late 1980s and now lives in Washington, D.C. He has filed a lawsuit against Troy Newman of Wichita seeking to keep Newman from using the Operation Rescue name.

Terry says it is deceitful and disingenuous for Newman to use the name to get media attention and donations.

Newman says that by 1998 no one was using the name, and he's confident he will win the lawsuit, which he filed last month before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
