Two camps are battling in New Jersey federal court over royalties paid by Universal Pictures for use of the car that became a time machine in the “Back to the Future” movie trilogy.

Sally DeLorean, the widow of auto executive John DeLorean, claims in a suit filed on Monday that DeLorean Motor Co. of Humble, Texas, misrepresented itself to Universal as owner of the DeLorean name.
