    NFL | Facenda Jr. suing NFL
    Thu, 20 Jul 2006 17:22:18 -0700

    The Associated Press reports John Facenda Jr.'s attorneys have filed a lawsuit against the NFL in which he claims his father's voice was misused in promoting a video game. Facenda's Sr. voice is synonymous with NFL Films, but his son claims his father's voice was misused in promoting a video game. The league is allowed to use Facenda's voice as long as it does not constitute the endorsement of a product or service, attorney Paul Lauricella said. But Facenda's voice opened the program and was used again in what Lauricella called a "30-minute commercial for the Madden game." "People revere the guy," Lauricella said. "They used his voice to make the program look authoritative." The league contends it did nothing wrong.
