NBA legend Michael Jordan says he is suing a grocery store chain for using his likeness without permission because his image is very precious to him. The longtime Chicago Bulls star took the stand Wednesday, telling jurors, “I have the final say-so on everything that involves my likeness and my name.” Dominick’s Finer Foods admits it was not authorized to use Jordan’s image in a 2009 magazine ad. The chain has since gone out of business. Jordan’s attorneys are seeking 10-million-dollars in damages, saying his name is worth at least 480-million to Nike and each commercial use of his name is worth at least 10-million.
