The fired founder of Habitat for Humanity International said Wednesday that he would rename his fledgling nonprofit, a concession that may ease tension in a nasty dispute that has spilled into federal court.
Millard Fuller said he would announce a new name Saturday for a charity he started after Habitat's board of directors fired him Jan. 31. Fuller had called the organization 'Building Habitat,' but Habitat for Humanity International sued him May 10 claiming the name infringed on Habitat's trademark and would confuse donors. "
