Michael Jordan Names 23 Charities to Benefit From Court Settlements

On Tuesday, Michael Jordan named 23 local charities to benefit from his recently settled lawsuits with two grocery chains, according to The Chicago Tribune and The Chicago Sun-Times.

The former Chicago Bulls basketball star had sued Dominick's and Jewel-Osco supermarkets for an undisclosed sum for using his name without permission in ads in a limited-edition issue of Sports Illustrated congratulating him on his elevation to the basketball Hall of Fame.

A spokeswoman for Mr. Jordan declined to say how much he is donating, citing the confidential terms of the court settlement.

Among the charities are After School Matters, an arts and education program founded by former Chicago First Lady Maggie Daley, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
