Jay-Z Settles Lawsuit With Boston Red Sox Star David Ortiz Over “40/40” Club Name


Jay-Z has reportedly agreed to settle a trademark infringement lawsuit with David Ortiz after suing the baseball player over the name of his nightclub in the Dominican Republic.

The Big Pimpin‘ star and his business partner Juan Perez filed a lawsuit in New York in April (10), accusing the Boston Red Sox star of infringing upon the name of their 40/40 sports bars by naming his hotspot the Forty/Forty Club.

They claimed Ortiz had been a patron at their Manhattan club on “several occasions” before opening his own bar in his native country, according to the New York Post.

But the two parties have now reportedly ended the legal dispute, with Ortiz agreeing to rename his venue and pull down its promotional website FortyForty.net.
