The charge, filed on June 15 in a California federal court, reads: “Mannion’s use of JAY-Z’s name, likeness, identity, and persona was, and is, in conscious disregard of JAY-Z’s right of privacy and publicity, and of his exclusive right to control the use and exploitation of his name, likeness, identity, and persona.”

This lawsuit accuses Mannion of thereby violating section 3344 of the California Civil Code, like Jay Z’s common law privacy rights.
