Michael Jordan sues two grocery stores

December 22, 2009 (CHICAGO) The ads both appeared in an issue of Sports Illustrated earlier this year honoring Jordan's induction into the basketball hall of fame. The Jewel ad shows a pair of basketball shoes, Air Jordans, with the No. 23 on each shoe.

The Dominick's ad shows a Bulls jersey look-alike with the No. 23 and name "Michael Jordan" on it.

Jordan attorney says both ads suggest an endorsement by Jordan where there was none and infringed items and images trademarked by Jordan and his company.

The lawsuits are seeking at least $5 million each.
