Jay-Z Sues David Ortiz Over Dominican Nightclub Name


The AP reports that Jay-Z is taking David Ortiz to court on charges that Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz has named his Dominican nightclub after Jay’s 40/40 clubs. The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Manhattan Federal Court, accuses Ortiz of naming his Santo Domingo club Forty-Forty in the hopes of trading in on the rap star’s fame. The suit seeks over $5 million in damages and for Ortiz to forfeit any use of the 40/40 name.

“David Ortiz is fully aware of Plaintiff’s Manhattan 40/40 club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions before he opened his Infringing Forty/Forty club,” the lawsuit states. The clubs are named after the feat of hitting 40 homers and stealing 40 bases in one season.
