Brown Appeals Dismissal of EA Suit
A judge ruled in September that EA was exercising First Amendment rights in using a player that resembles Brown and has his jersey number, when Brown sued for trademark infringement in 2008.
The judge, Florence-Marie Copper, died in January, and Brown is arguing against the dismissal.
The Times reported EA Spokesman Jeff Brown said the company is “confident the ruling will be upheld.”
