Entertaining twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are suing video-game publisher Acclaim Entertainment, claiming nonpayment of game royalties.

NEW YORK--Entertaining twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are suing video-game publisher Acclaim Entertainment, claiming nonpayment of game royalties.

In the suit, which was filed April 15 in Los Angeles Superior Court, the Olsens say Acclaim failed to pay $178,000 under a settlement the parties reached last September.

An audit of Acclaim's books indicated that the girls had not been paid "hundreds of thousands of dollars" in royalties that they were entitled to from games featuring the duo.

Acclaim could not immediately be reached for comment.
