Michael Jordan case against Dominick’s going to court

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

CHICAGO -- "His Airness" is expected in court, not on the court, Tuesday.

Bulls legend Michael Jordan is taking defunct grocery store Dominick's to task over a 2009 magazine ad the store published using his name and jersey number without his permission.

The civil case is all about damages. A judge has already ruled in favor of Jordan, but said in his ruling that $5 million in damages was "greedy."

Now another judge in civil court will determine what figure the former basketball great deserves. Jordan's attorney has asked that there be limited access to the federal court proceedings because prior endorsement deals will be discussed. There has been no ruling on that issue yet.

Jordan will be in court and could be called to testify.

    This makes me reconsider being a fan of Jordan. It’s clear the ad was meant to be positive or at least neutral. It’s a money grab or a show of power for Jordan. Definitely not the role model I thought he was.
