Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, August 14


On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, NBA legend Michael Jordan is suing Dominick's grocery store chain for unauthorized use of his name in a magazine ad. CPS will no longer pay pension pickups for non-union workers. Also, the University of Illinois trustees deny outgoing chancellor Phyllis Wise a $400,000 bonus. In business, Motorola Mobility and Kraft Heinz announce major job cuts. And in sports, the struggling White Sox host the red-hot Cubs in the Crosstown Classic.
