BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Fox knocked out in Muhammad Ali Super Bowl lawsuit

Fox knocked out in Muhammad Ali Super Bowl lawsuit

Fox Broadcasting is perhaps bleeding on the floor — dollar amount undisclosed — after settling a $30 million lawsuit filed by Muhammad Ali Enterprises in 2017 claiming the network used the famous boxer’s likeness in a Super Bowl ad. 

Fox argued the case was an attack on free speech, but at a hearing a judge saw the possibility that a three-minute video about great athletes was commercial speech, Fox News reported Tuesday.

The entity that owns rights to Mr. Ali’s likeness argued that the three-minute video before the Super Bowl in 2017 violated publicity rights and represented a false endorsement, according to the report.
