SEATTLE (AP) — A dispute between the American Lung Association and its Northwest chapter is headed to court in Seattle.

Lawyers for the national charity are asking a King County Superior Court judge Friday for a preliminary injunction that would prohibit the Northwest chapter from continuing to use the American Lung Association name or logo.

The Northwest chapter runs the organization's clean air, anti-smoking and lung health programs in Alaska, Washington and Idaho.

The American Lung Association says the chapter violated policies by selling its downtown Seattle headquarters for $10 to a competing, new lung health foundation.

The Northwest chapter says transferring its assets was a creative way of dealing with financial difficulties.
