David Ortiz, Jay-Z Settle 40/40 Nightclub Naming Dispute

Earlier this month, David Ortiz and Jay-Z resumed the legal conflict that began last April over the names of the nightclubs owned by the slugger and the singer. Jay-Z owns a collection of clubs of the name 40/40 while Ortiz, supposedly influenced by the former’s business, opened a Forty-Forty club of his own in the Dominican Republic. As the trial date drew near, the two superstars reached a last-minute agreement to prevent a court battle.

While details of the settlement have not been released, Jay-Z was seeking $5 million dollars in damages from Big Papi, the two sides have agreed to a framework. Whether this will include Ortiz changing the name of his club or the club’s web address remains to be seen.

Thankfully this conflict will not carry over into the season, leaving Red Sox Nation and Ortiz ready to focus on strategies for the baseball diamond and not the court room.
