Nike, Hall of Fame sued over Jordan

BOSTON (AP) A Massachusetts company has sued Nike and the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, claiming it has been cut out of the sportswear business related to Michael Jordan's upcoming induction into the Hall.

SportsFuzion Inc. claims plans by Nike and the Hall of Fame for a line of Jordan sportswear violate a contract SportsFuzion says gave it exclusive licensing rights to the Hall of Fame's logos, trademarks, designs and photos for use in sportswear.

Nike is expected to release its Air Jordan Hall of Fame collection this summer, ahead of Jordan's induction into the Hall of Fame in September.
