LAS VEGAS (AP) –

Michael Jackson merchandiser Bravado of the Universal Music
Group filed suit against Las Vegas company Julian Rouas Paris on
Thursday in federal court in Los Angeles.

Bravado alleges the perfume maker is illegally exploiting
Michael Jackson's name.

Owner Julian Rouas could not immediately be reached for comment.
His company and Joe Jackson have promoted the launch of Jackson
Tribute, a fragrance for men, and Jackson Legend, a fragrance for
women.

Promotional material includes pictures of Michael Jackson.
Joe Jackson was not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

Bravado is seeking $150,000 in statutory damages, as well as
punitive damages.
