Basketball legend Michael Jordan will be able to move forward with his lawsuit against Jewel Food Stores over an advertisement the grocery store chain ran in a 2009 commemorative issue of Sports Illustrated that congratulated the former Chicago Bulls’ great on his induction into the Hall of Fame. According to Cook County Record, “In short, the ad’s commercial nature is readily apparent. It may be generic and implicit, but it is nonetheless clear,” Judge Diane Sykes wrote for the panel. “The ad is a form of image advertising aimed at promoting goodwill for the Jewel-Osco brand by exploiting public affection for Jordan at an auspicious moment in his career” Good to see MJ’s still going hard to the hole.-TO
