LEGALLY SPEAKING: Jay Z Sues Red Sox's David Ortiz for Forty/Forty Fraud

David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox must have really really enjoyed himself at Jay Z's 40/40 Club! Word is that Jay Z and business partners are now suing him and his sister, Albania Ortiz, for opening a club in the Dominican Republic with the same name and premise.

Though Ortiz's club is Forty/Forty not 40/40 Jay ain't havin it. Ortiz is being sued for "trademark infringement", "unjust enrichment", and "false designation of sponsorship". He is also being charged with "cyber-squatting" for running a Spanish language website of the same name( All of this will cost Ortiz 5 milli + if Jay has his way.

Apparently, Ortiz claimed he had never even been to Jay's 40/40 but there are pics (video?) of him partying it up there... a 2008 All-Star game event. Womp Womp.

What a loser move. C'Mon Son!
