Dick's Sporting Goods aims filed a lawsuit on Feb. 20 in Mercer County Court claming that Mitchell Modell, CEO of Modell's Sporting Goods, showed up at the Dick's in Princeton in February saying he was a Dick's senior vice president.Dick's alleges Modell told employees he was to meet the Dick's CEO there and persuaded workers to show him the backroom of the store and to answer questions about the business. Modell gathered information about online sales, including a "ship from store" program that gets products to customers' doors quickly, the lawsuit said....Dick's accuses its rival of civil conspiracy and trespass and is seeking attorneys' fees and a judge's order to prevent Modell and his workers from entering nonpublic areas of Dick's stores or posing as employees.Modell's spokesman Jason Karlowski would not comment. But, hey -- Mitchell could't pull this move off on Undercover Boss either...Stevens Point Journal...Sporting goods stores battle in N.J. lawsuit**Follow us on Twitter, Subscribe by Email, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return Home
