Marion Barry's widow sues her late husband's kidney donor

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - The widow of former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry is suing the woman who donated a kidney to Barry in 2009.

The lawsuit claims that Kim Dickens does not have permission to use Barry's likeness - referred to as his "celebrity image" in court documents - to promote her charity, the Barry Dickens Kidney Foundation.

The foundation promotes organ donation and its website says Dickens and Barry founded the group together - a claim that Barry's widow, Cora Masters Barry, contends isn't true.

A waste of a good kidney.
