How Tom Brady is suing the Washington Post
Tom Brady’s attorneys filed a notice Monday that they intend to seek a court order barring the Washington Times from using his name in print, according to the notice.
The Washington Times has used Brady’s name in the past and in other print material, but it has been barred from using him in a television commercial or in a feature on the team.
The NFLPA filed a lawsuit against the Times in September over the decision to name Tom Brady the “Super Bowl MVP” in the team’s first-ever ad.
Brady’s attorneys say the lawsuit is necessary to protect the NFL’s trademarks, which are protected by trademark law.
They also say the use of the name is in breach of Brady’s agreement with the NFL, which he signed in 2012.
In the notice, the NFLPA said that if the NFL does not allow the Times to use Brady’s likeness, the League will consider all legal options to stop the use.
The complaint was filed by lawyer Jason Zielinski and attorney Michael Lattimore, who both have a history of defending Brady.
Zielinksi was also Brady’s lawyer in the Deflategate case.
Brady has a history with the Times.
In the past, he’s sued the newspaper for defaming him.
In July 2015, Brady filed a defamation lawsuit against a Times photographer for using his picture in an article about the team that did not identify him as the team owner.
The lawsuit also claimed that the Times did not follow standard editorial standards and used an inappropriate photo of him to make a negative statement about Brady.
Bradys lawyers also said in the complaint that the Washington Free Beacon, the sports news outlet owned by the Times, published the photo of Brady without permission.
