Jim Brown filed suit to stop the online sale of his ’64 championship ring

According to the Associated Press,  Cleveland Browns great Jim Brown has filed a lawsuit to stop the online sale of his 1964 NFL Championship ring.

Brown claims the ring was stolen, while the company auctioning it off says otherwise.

The lawsuit seeks to halt the sale of the ring in an online auction that ends Friday. It also seeks unspecified damages over broadcast remarks that Lelands’ founder, Joshua Evans, made about Brown.

Evans said Wednesday that Brown’s claims “are entirely without merit and we intend to vigorously defend against them.”
