FORT WORTH, Texas (1080 KRLD) – Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. and Sony Pictures Consumer Products Inc. have  filed a federal lawsuit against Rick’s Cabaret International, Inc., owners of the Ricky Bobby Sports Saloon in Fort Worth.

The 2006 film “Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” staring comedian Will Ferrell is one of the top grossing comedies of all time. Columbia, which is owned by Sony, is accusing Rick’s Cabaret of infringing on multiple trademarks when it opened its sports bar near the Texas Motor Speedway, including  what the movie company says is a trademark of the character name “Ricky Bobby. ”

Chris Bosh has two of the three most expensive homes in the NBA

For The Win

No player in the NBA has spent more money on real estate than Miami Heat All-Star big man Chris Bosh. Citing data from Realtor.com, HoopsHype lists Bosh’s $12.3 million mansion as the priciest home in the NBA.

Bosh’s home is in Miami, making him one of a league-leading 25 players who own a home in Florida. California comes in a close second with 24. As it so happens, Bosh owns a home there as well — it’s the third-most expensive in the league, valued at $9.4 million.

Kobe Bryant also ranks highly on this list. He owns two properties that are valued at a combined $18 million.

The dominance of Florida and Texas on this list isn’t surprising, given that neither state has a state income tax in place.

And 23 states count no NBA players as residents. Sorry, New Mexico.
