The Owner Of A Supermarket Now Has To Pay Micheal Jordan
$8.9 Million For Using His Name With Out Permission
BHR Hollywood Reports...........The owner of a supermarket chain must pay Michael Jordan $8.9 million for using his name and promoting a product in an ad without his permission.

The amount was close to the $10 million his attorneys said the one-time use of his name was worth and Jordan hugged his lawyers after the decision was read in a federal court in Chicago, where Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won six NBA championships.

"I'm so used to playing on a different court," a visibly delighted Jordan told reporters outside the courthouse. "This shows I will protect my name to the fullest. ... It's my name and I worked hard for it ... and I'm not just going to let someone take it."

Jordan added that the case "was never about money" and that he'll give the damages award to charities in Chicago.

"I'm so used to playing on a different court," a visibly delighted Jordan told reporters outside the courthouse.

Stepping back into the courthouse, two jurors asked him for a photograph, and he obliged by throwing his arms around them and smiling for a cellphone camera.

Jordan's fame loomed over the case, with one would-be juror struck from the pool during jury selection after describing Jordan as his idol.

 During closings earlier Friday, Jordan attorney Frederick Sperling appealed to city pride in trying to persuade jurors to side with Jordan.

"He gave us six championships," he told jurors, Jordan sitting nearby.

Three weeks ago, Jordan lost a legal battle to stop a company in China called Qiaodan Sports, even though the name means "Jordan," it has a similar silhouette to the Jumpman logo and it uses the number 23.
