TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A former owner of an Ohio hot dog eatery made famous on the TV series "M-A-S-H" is serving up another attempt at regaining control of the company.

He's asking an appeals court in Toledo to nullify the sale of Tony Packo's.

Robin Horvath is one of two cousins who have fought for more than a year over the ownership of Tony Packo's after a bank foreclosed on its loans and a court-appointed third party was put in charge.

Representatives of a private restaurant group in Toledo finalized their purchase of the chain in February.

Tony Packo's became a household name in the 1970s when actor Jamie Farr portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier in the Korean War who longed for Packo's hot dogs.
