Your first model is a Multinomial logit. Your second model reminds me of a Conditional logit. It may not be quite the same but it's in the ballpark of what you're trying to do. Check out "McFadden's conditional logit" as described on pages 43-45 in Maddala, G.S. (1983: reprinted paperback 1999). "Limited Dependent and Qualitative Variables in Econometrics". Cambridge University Press: NY, NY.
