Modell's CEO in hot water for undercover visit to Dick's Sporting Goods

Dick's Sporting Goods claims that Mitchell Modell, the CEO of Modell's Sporting Goods, showed up at a Dick's store in New Jersey in February saying he was a SVP collecting information about the store. Dick's alleges Modell told store associates he was to meet the Dick's CEO there and persuaded employees to show him the backroom of the store and answer questions about the business.

Dick's is seeking unspecified financial compensation for damages and asking for a ruling that would bar Modell or any of his employees from visiting non-public areas of a Dick's store. Story
