Jay-Z and a business partner are suing slugger David Ortiz, claiming the Boston Red Sox star named his Dominican nightclub after the mogul's chain of 40/40 clubs.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Manhattan Federal Court, accuses Ortiz of naming his Santo Domingo club Forty-Forty in the hopes of trading in on the rap star's fame.
The suit seeks over $5 million in damages and for Ortiz to forfeit any use of the 40/40 name.
Jay-Z's string of bars can be found in Manhattan, Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
``David Ortiz is fully aware of Plaintiff's Manhattan 40/40 club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions before he opened his Infringing Forty/Forty club,'' the lawsuit states.
The clubs are named after the feat of hitting 40 homers and stealing 40 bases in one season.
A message seeking comment was left Thursday night with SFX Baseball, the agency that represents Ortiz.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Red Sox 6/1 to win the 2010 World Series and 3/1 to win the American League Pennant. They have 1.4/1 odds to unseat the Yankees in the AL East and their over/under total for wins has been set at 94.5.
