AUGUSTA, Ga. -- News 12 has just learned the attorney general has filed a motion to halt the lawsuit against the name of the "New U."

The partial motion was filed to dismiss the lawsuit all together and to push back fact-finding.

Regent University in Virginia filed the lawsuit earlier this year over "trademark infringement." The university says Georgia Regents University, the name chosen for the "New U," is too similar and wants to block the Augusta university from using the name.

They also want the "New U" to get ride of any material that has the name on it and pay Regent University three times the amount of the damage they say has been done.

News 12 is waiting to hear from Regent University on this case.
