Nolan K. Bushnell, the millionaire founder of Atari and Pizza Time Theater, is being sued for more than $65 million by a woman who claims he infected her with herpes and then reneged on a $50,000-a-year deal for her to keep quiet about it.

Bushnell on Thursday denied having an affair with Kish and called her allegations "absolutely untrue, categorically." He added, "I do not and never have had herpes" . . .
