A Westmoreland County man claims in a federal defamation lawsuit filed Wednesday that opponents in a Tucson-based hunters' advocacy group falsely accused him of improprieties to block his election as board secretary, remove him as the group's paid spokesman and expel him from the group.

Larry Rudolph, 57, of Unity said Safari Club International's president and five-member board of inquiry publicized the allegations to the group's membership before the May 12 election without first giving him a hearing on the charges.

He is suing the organization, the president and the five board members. A Safari Club International spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
