On Friday, Rodriguez and his lawyers dropped the final remaining lawsuit he had filed; which was the one against the New York Yankees team doctor; Dr. Christopher Ahmad and the hospital, New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, as Christian Red of the New York Daily News reported from the copy of the court papers filed with the Bronx Supreme Court stated.
Rodriguez's suit had claimed that during the 2012 American League playoffs, Ahmad did not properly read an MRI of Rodriguez's left hip and did not properly diagnose a left hip injury; Rodriguez had left hip surgery in January of 2013 and didn't return to the Yankees until August of 2013.
Ahmad's attorney, Peter Crean, issued a statement stating that his client is glad that the malpractice lawsuit is over and behind him and wished A-Rod the best of luck in the future.
"Dr. Christopher Ahmad is pleased that Alex Rodriguez has voluntarily withdrawn his claims, demonstrating, as we have always held, that Dr. Ahmad's care was appropriate. Dr. Ahmad wishes Mr. Rodriguez the best for his future," Peter Crean, Ahmad's attorney, told the Daily News.
