Pacers President of Basketball Operations LARRY BIRD Monday filed suit in U.S. District Court in New Albany, Indiana, claiming that GEORGIANNA LINCOLN and CHRISTOPHER COOKE "did not have permission to use his name" for their French Lick Resort, a bed-and-breakfast on the property of Bird's former estate that they are advertising as the "former home of Larry Bird.'' Bird also claimed that Lincoln and Cooke are "illegally profiting off his trademarked nickname." The suit seeks a name change and damages (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 5/14).
