Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
