While Alex Rodriguez's hearing regarding his 211-game suspension from Major League Baseball is ongoing in New York City, the New York Yankees third basemen is firing back in the legal world and taking a swing at the sport he plays for.
On Friday, Rodriguez and his legal team filed a lawsuit against Major League Baseball, as he accuses the league of conducting "a witch hunt" with regards to their investigation of performance enhancing drugs. Andy McCullough from the Newark-Star Ledger cites what exactly A-Rod is suing the league for.
"As he awaits judgment for his 211-game suspension, Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball, accusing the league of conducting a “witch hunt” and engaging in “tortious interference” in his contracts and business relationships. The suit also alleges MLB paid for the cooperation and testimony of Anthony Bosch, the head of Biogenesis, the clinic from which this scandal emerged, and paid Bosch $5 million for his participation. It also accuses MLB of paying $150,000 for “stolen documents,” with the cash “handed off in a bag in a Fort Lauderdale, Florida area restaurant.”
