T.O. Says N.O. to New York City Club in New Lawsuit
Everyone's in a suin' mood today: News just came down the pike that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens is going after an NYC nightclub for $600,000. Seems that a club called Avalon might have "improperly used his name, likeness and famous initials, T.O., in 2006 and 2007 to promote its Friday Night Lights events and other parties," according to an Associated Press piece. Also, says the story, the suit claims that "that the nightclub's improper use of [Owens'] name and likeness has diluted his valuable property rights." Like, say, this. --Robert Wilonsky
