While '60s demonstrators at other campuses marched and burned draft cards, then-freshman Lloyd Charton was part of a sneakier protest movement at UC Irvine--mocking the university by getting the school's mascot named the Anteaters. "I wasn't the guy who came up with the name, but I was the zealous advocate," Charton recalled. "That was our protest." Now, three decades later, Charton is again the "zealous advocate" facing down the university--this time as the civil attorney for Dr. Ricardo H.

A renowned UC Irvine fertility expert stepped up his defense Wednesday against allegations of impropriety, contending through his attorney that he is the target of an extortionist and is willing to take a lie detector test to prove he has done nothing wrong. Lloyd Charton, a lawyer for Dr. Ricardo H. Asch, released copies of a letter he says was sent to Asch and two other doctors at the UCI Center for Reproductive Health. The letter demands $100,000 from each physician to prevent the public release of "numerous documents" that would expose "outrageous excesses."
