Duane 'Dog' Chapman and his wife Beth are accusing their former agent of trying to cheat them...again.

The Chapmans have been in a legal battle with Boris Krutonog about fees that his company Pivot Point Entertainment apparently started taking in connection with an A&E deal. According to the Chapmans, Krutonog quietly negotiated a producer's fee with A&E, which includes a portion their earnings from the network. However, the Chapmans say that the fee is really meant to be a talent agent's fee, which is invalid since Krutonog isn't a licensed agent.

The Chapmans' newest accusation is that Krutonog is attempting to end this by filing a claim with the New York Labor Commissioner, despite the fact that the case is already in the hands of the California Labor Commissioner.

Since New York will be more willing to go easy on Krutonog, the Chapmans are insisting that the judge put an end to the case there.
